Nick Allan started this petition to St. Catherines Council

We are asking for a jump bike park in St. Catharines. With many mountain bikers living here we all share the same issue: “Where are the good trails?” We have to drive over 100km to get to the closest bike park built for mountain and dirt jump bikes. This causes many of us to lose focus and stop the sport entirely. Marlene Stewart Streit Park was home to one of the biggest dirt jump parks around. Only being maintained by a few people, yet it introduced so many kids into the sport and kept them out of trouble. Within the last month it was deemed unnecessary and was dismantled by the corporation who owns the land, leaving the local kids with nowhere to ride. Burgoyne Woods is the last local bike park. Although they don’t permit maintenance, causing it to be unrideable and unsafe. We have nowhere left to ride jump trails. Places such as Rotary Bike Park in Brantford and SunnySide Bike Park in Toronto bring many people in from out of the city to ride, causing them to spend money into the local economy. Up north of Toronto there are many bike parks to offer which introduce people to the sport and allow them to progress, some riders who live there are now the best in the world and compete all around the globe. We as a community ask for a jump bike park in St. Catharines to give us somewhere to ride, and to introduce new people to the sport.
