Partner / Sponsor

MTBCO is a non-profit organization powered by volunteers, that builds and maintains trails in addition to advocating for the mountain biking community in Kelowna and the Central Okanagan.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve and promote mountain biking in the Kelowna area by developing the trail networks, organizing events, and building the mountain bike community. We are empowered by our membership to create a world class trail network in the Okanagan Valley.

Under partnership agreements with the City of Kelowna, B.C. Parks, and Recreation Sites and Trails B.C. (RSTBC) we manage over 250 km of trails, located in our 3 managed-trail networks: Knox Mountain, Gillard, and Crawford.

We rely on the funds generated from sponsorships, donations, membership, and grants to provide our community with outstanding mountain bike trails.

2022 Goals

MTBCO Members
  • Membership Goal: We've steadily increased membership from 300 in 2019 to over 900 in 2021. We're pushing to get 1800 members in 2022.
  • Environmental Assessment - Pending the review of our environmental assessment of the Gillard area, we will be able to move forward with new built projects, namely a climbing trail. We have commissioned an environmental consulting firm and expect this to be completed by Summer 2022. Estimated Cost: $10,000
  • Trail feature upgrades - We are working diligently to get the 85 wooden trail features up to safety standards. Estimated Cost: $2,500
  • Gillard Climbing Trail - Pending environment approval we hope to begin construction on the first engineered climbing trail in Gillard. The first phase will be build in 3 segments and will add 4.5 km of new trail to the network. We plan to solidify our design by Fall 2022, hoping to brake ground 2023. Estimated Cost: $90,000
  • Knox Mountain Trail Management Plan - In partnership with the City of Kelowna, we need to develop and trail management plan for Knox Mountain Park that will include standardized signage, maintenance planning, and plans for future use. Estimated Cost: $2,500
  • Pump Track and Bike Skills Park - Kelowna needs a pump track! A skills park will cater to riders of all ages, help develop new riders’ skill levels, and drive tourism. We are still in the early planning stages, but we will need the community’s financial support to make this park a reality. Estimated Cost: $250,000
