Mountain bikers clean up garbage

The Doumont trail system is a popular place for Nanaimoites and visitors alike to enjoy nature.

But while some come to hike or bike the trails through the forest and admire the flora and fauna, others come to illegally dump garbage.

That’s why the Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club is organizing a clean up of the area on Sunday (Oct. 21) starting at 10 a.m. at the motocross track on Weigles Road.

The club is looking for volunteers interested in helping to rid the forest of the garbage people have strewn across it. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves and trucks would also be helpful; garbage bags and water will be provided.

Waste Management has donated a truck and driver for the day and the Regional District of Nanaimo will waive the tipping fees.

For directions or more information, please contact nmbclub@hotmail.com or lvenables@shaw.ca.
