Plans in place for first mountain bike skills area

Fri, 06 May 2016

Plans are in place to build the Isle of Man's first dedicated mountain bike skills area in Foxdale.
The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture, which owns the land, is working with the Manx Mountain Bike Club to progress the idea in South Barrule Forest. 
It would see raised boardwalks and natural stone paths created so that people who are learning to ride can hone their skills. 
The department says the application falls in line with its objectives to make the area a 'recreational hub' - it will be determined by the Council of Ministers and is currently pending consideration.
