Mountain Bike StrategyRDCO logo

The City of Kelowna and the Regional District of Central Okanagan are developing a mountain biking strategy for improved delivery and management of the sport of mountain biking.

This recreational activity includes a wide range of participants and riding options that range from family rides along the Mission Creek Greenway, downhill riders testing their skills on mountainbikerchallenging descents, younger riders getting airborne off dirt jumps, to destination tourists eager to explore the Okanagan’s recreational opportunities for the first time. 

Riders have specific kinds of trails and facilities they need to enjoy their sport. These need to be built, managed and maintained to ensure a safe and responsible use of the landscape.

The Kelowna & Area Mountain Bike Strategypdf icon will assess what the area around the City of Kelowna already has in place and create a plan that will deliver needed trails and facilities to meet current and anticipated demands for the different kinds of riders in the area.
