You can participate by speaking (details on speaking) and /or sending an email to the city council at CC@rpv.com. We encourage RPV residents to voice their views. Email CORBA PV at info@mtbpv.org if you have questions.

Suggestions:

  • Please don’t send duplicate emails or petitions, make them original.
  • Keep it positive! No need to rant or complain, just tell them what you feel is a fair plan.
  • For specific trails, use the names on the CORBA PV recommendations.
  • For trails not on the map, try west or east of the closest named trail. There should be a map on display.

Below are some points to consider:

  • Cyclist will stay on designated trails and not build new ones.
  • Cyclists will volunteer to repair damage to trails.
  • The bike community is working to make sure everyone knows the rules.
  • There is no evidence that bike use impacts trails any differently from other users if they stay on designated trails.
  • Cyclists have volunteered for trail work and deserve respect.
  • I’ve volunteered to repair these trails. We deserve to ride them. 
  • Cyclists can control their bikes even on the steepest trail.
  • I’ve never had a bad encounter with hikers or horses.
