MEC Dirt Search Conest

NEWS!!!

The Annapolis Valley Mountain Bike Association has been selected to participant in a grant contest put on by Mountain Equipment Co-op. Their "Dirt Search Contest" will award two bike associations,one in Western Canada and one in the East with a $10,000 grant for the trail project of their choice!

I'm pretty stoked that the AVMBA is in the finalists, we will have a 1 in 12 shot at winning the grant! Pretty good odds! But... we need your help. This will be an online vote so the more you vote the better our chances. The group with the most votes wins. You'll be able to vote every day for 5 weeks.
The trail project we've chosen is to build a new school "flow trail" filled up with berms, rollers, table top jumps, and other fun features. It's going to be awesome and assessable for riders of all ages. New riders will be able to roll down the trail with a smile on their face and experienced rippers will be finding tons of ways to get some air time! Basically a mini resort style trail. 



Vote AVMBA! Vote daily, get your dog to vote, your cat, your dentist, every one you can find 

Thanks!
