Plans to build a BMX track in the Shuswap are continuing but focusing on a new location – Silver Creek.

Shelly Desautels and a subgroup of the Shuswap Cycling Club interested in BMX are working to get a track built at the Silver Creek Community Park.

Desautels, who has been spearheading the project, says so far the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) and the Silver Creek community have been very receptive to the plan.

A message from Desautels and others lobbying for the construction of the track, promises the venue in Silver Creek will provide kids with an opportunity to be active, bring in riders from other communities who will buy gas and groceries at the local store and provide an opportunity to host events at the community hall which will bring money into Silver Creek.
