Ice cream bike on the way

Look for it on a trail near you in Kimberley this summer

David Johnson wants to bring an ice cream bike to Kimberley's trails and neighbourhoods.

Kimberley residents may be hearing the siren call of an ice cream bicycle this summer.

Local entrepreneur David Johnson visited Kimberley City Council last week to lay out his plans for a mobile ice cream business.

The plan is to provide service to those using public parks and trails, such as: (but not limited to) Mark Creek trail, Rotary Park, Rails to Trails, Skate/Bike Park, Peak to Platzl trail, Kimberley Nature Park, Ball fields, Tennis Courts, the new flume area and swimming hole, Forest Crowne, Townsite, Chapman Camp, Ski Hill area and other residential areas. The plan is to avoid the Platzl area and competing businesses such as local ice cream shops and gas stations and focus on bringing service to those enjoying the recreational areas.

Johnson would also like to ride the Rails 2 Trails in Kimberley but will have to have separate discussions with the Rails 2 Trails Society.

In any event, keep an eye out in your neighbourhood for the ice cream bike, even in Townsite. Johnson says the bike has a small assist engine to help going up hills.
