The objective of the strategy is to provide a framework for the coordinated development, management and marketing of mountain biking opportunities in Western Australia. All interested cyclists and in particular mountain bikers of all levels can provide input into the Strategy at the earlier stage by completing the related online survey.
Single Track Minds state that they envision that the Western Australian State Mountain Bike Strategy will address a number of Western Australian state level mountain biking issues including:
- The strategic identification of sites for trail development that are in alignment with environmental policies and mapping and also provide positive and diverse mountain biking experiences;
- Developing strong governance models, in particular establishing clear roles and responsibility between local organisations and State Government;
- Establishing a clear strategic framework for trail planning and development to ensure strategic plans can be effectively and efficiently transferred to on-the- ground trail development;
- Prioritisation of sites and regions for trail development to ensure supply is in alignment with current and future demand;
- Development of funding frameworks to establish mechanisms and opportunities for funding including for trail development and ongoing maintenance; and
- Ensuring the sport of mountain biking can continue to grow through education, marketing and club development.
Single Track Minds anticipate presenting the Western Australian State Mountain Bike Strategy for consideration in December 2012. All interested cyclists and in particular mountain bikers of all levels can provide input into the Strategy at the earlier stage by completing the related online survey.
The information will be used by Single Track Minds to help identify the best opportunities for mountain biking in Western Australia, the expectations and needs of all levels and types of riders, and a way forward for future trail and infrastructure development.
