Coleraine Council Explores Garvagh Potential

Coleraine Council, Carn Wheelers, ORNI and NIMBA take a quick break from the Garvagh Forest trail tour
In a meeting on 15 December organised by NIMBA, senior officers from Coleraine Borough Council were given an in-depth tour of the existing trail and forest road network within Garvagh Forest by representatives from Carn Wheelers Cycling Club, accompanied by NIMBA and Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland. 

This was a good opportunity to discuss at first hand the existing recreational activity within this compact but feature-rich forest, as well as to consider the potential for further development of trails that would cater for a wide range of riders, from kids and families right up to experts and racers.

Led by our excellent guides for over 2 hours of riding, we weren’t on the same trail twice, with every inch of the forest explored, demonstrating the potential for extensive trails even within a relatively small forest.  Despite terrible weather on the day, everyone finished with a smile on their face, and a further meeting to progress things is planned for early in the New Year.
