Committee Chair Tim Skinner welcomed Santa Cruz’s
funding in Nelson’s mountain biking
group.

“Securing this funding is a win-win
state of affairs for Nelson’s mountain biking group. The
sponsorship recognises that Nelson’s mountain biking is
world class and the funding leads to a saving for
Council’s Lengthy Time period Plan that can allow enhancements in
different areas of the mountain biking community.”

Mel
Schroder, Chair of NMTBC says, “the grant is the
achievement of one among NMTBC’s objectives for holding an Enduro
World Collection in Nelson, which was to safe additional
funding in mountain bike infrastructure for its members.
Even earlier than we maintain the occasion, the group will get to see
the advantages due to the Santa Cruz PayDirt
grant.”

their mountain bike advertising and marketing throughout 2021, and their
branding will probably be included on path signage, as is the
