Wed, 12 Jul 2017

The Island's first dedicated mountain bike skills area has been opened in one of the Island's plantations.

The site is in the South Barrule Forest and is designed to encourage people to be hit and healthy while using the countryside.

The Manx Mountain Bike Club and Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture created the facility, which is suitable for beginners and more advanced riders.

The work has been funded by DEFA, as well as the Manx Lottery Trust, Isle of Man Sport and the End to End Legacy project.
