Stay tuned as we release more details in the coming weeks here and on our website.
3. CMBC Trail Development Guiding Principles
In fall 2018, CMBC undertook an exercise to engage members in what they thought the club’s trail priorities should be. We had a great response, with 75 people responding to our survey and over 30 people attending our workshop. THANK YOU for your great input, members! Based on the outcomes of the survey and workshop, we came up with these following guiding principles:
CMBC Trail Development Guiding Principles
- Progression – allowing for skill development while still building fun trails for advanced riders
- Connections – enhancing connections to optimize the existing trail network
- Sustainability – balancing the needs of today, and tomorrow, and ensuring our decisions today support trail and organizational longevity/sustainability
The board is going to use these pillars to help us prioritize new trail projects, as ideas and requests come in, over the next year. We will revisit after a year of using these guiding principles to adjust as needed, and move forward with successes.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any comments/questions. See you on the trails!
