» Yvonne Mendel has started a petition to City of Victoria Council

Our beloved bike park, Cecelia Ravine is in dire need of maintenance. The features have been worn down and need re-sculpting.

This maintenance should be done annually. The park is less interesting to ride when the features have been rounded off by use and erosion.

For me it is not the moment of achievement,
not the mastery of the elements or of a particular skill,
not the discovery of ability.
For me it is the ongoing relationship with this ocean and the balance and perspective that this relationship yields.
