More good news from Mountain Bike Halifax!
Mountain Bike Halifax would like to thank Vision Air Services for their support in transporting tools and building materials to remote areas of the McIntosh Run Trail Network.
As you may know, there are some significant structures required to span waterways in the McIntosh Run Trail Network – most notably the Flat Lake crossing and the McIntosh Run crossing in the West Pine area. These are significant boardwalk and bridge structures requiring engineered design and special construction. The materials needed to build these structures weigh in at close to 11,000lbs.
Vision Air Helicopter Services has generously offered their services to sling these materials in to remote build sites at a greatly reduced cost to facilitate the construction of these water crossings. This is a significant contribution as delivering these materials to such remote locations is a massive undertaking and would be near impossible to transport by other means.
It is these partnerships of local organizations, businesses and individual volunteers that are making the McIntosh Run Single Track Trail Network the success that it is and will pave (maybe not the best choice of words) the way for future trail development in HRM. We at Mountain Bike Halifax would like to recognize the efforts of ALL contributors to this giant project and thank you all for your contributions and tireless efforts in supporting the McIntosh Run Watershed Association in the realization of HRM’s first single track trail network.
