Over $53,000 has been awarded to the Rip’n the North Bike Club in Vanderhoof courtesy of the Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund.

Three kilometres of new trails and a series of jumps will be added to the bike park.

NKDF Manager, Britta Boudreau says it will enhance the area.

“The bike park, in particular, is sort of a way to attract people to the region and boost tourism.”

The NKDF Board approved $88,000 to three projects.

The next deadline for project funding is April 12.
