Dirt bikes not fun for everyone

"It would be pleasant to sit outside on the weekend and not hear that roar of bikes which echoes across the valley."

I wish to make a complaint about the trail bike riders who ride the land across from McLachlan Motors and the residences along the river in Waneta.

These bikes seem to go everywhere, along the beach, and up and down the fragile embankment.

The noise is horrendous, not to mention tearing up the land and endangering wildlife. It would be pleasant to sit outside on the weekend and not hear that roar of bikes which echoes across the valley.

The land is Teck property and there are No Trespassing signs, which are ignored.

“Fun” it may be, but at what cost?
