Meeting with Forest Service to Discuss Process

08 Feb 2012 9:00 AM | Rick McKee (Administrator)
An ‘action shot’ from a very productive meeting on 7th February with Ian Irwin, Director of Forest Management at Forest Service NI and some representatives from the local mountain biking community.



The objective of the meeting was to confirm the precise process for planning, developing and maintaining sustainable trails in Northern Ireland’s forests, focusing on a ‘bottom up’ model utilising local knowledge, resources and support.

This was also the first opportunity to introduce the Northern Ireland Mountain Biking Alliance, an effort to unify and magnify the voice of mountain biking in Northern Ireland – bringing together bikers (of every type), clubs (cycling, MTB, adventure racing, etc), IMBA, businesses, voluntary organisations; anyone who is interested in seeing the further development of mountain biking trails and facilities in our part of the world.

If you’d like to add your voice (or the voice of your club) to the effort, or would simply like to know more, then get in touch with Rick on chairman@nimba.org.uk, or browse around this site.

We are making progress – add your voice, and together we'll see more trails in our local forests.
