The city greased the chain for a controversial new mountain bike park proposed for Carlington Hill on Wednesday, despite the concerns of a councillor who complained about the process and poor public consultation.

The Ottawa Mountain Bike Association has aspirations for a multi-phase bike park, but the city is prepared to only go ahead with a “pump track” and skills area on a grassy plateau. The city says it will spend a small amount of money to install signs in the area.
