Meeting to Discuss Opportunities for Tardree Forest

19 Dec 2012 9:00 AM | Rick McKee (Administrator)

Representatives from NIMBA met with officers from Antrim Borough Council on 18 December to present and discuss the merits of developing sustainable mountain biking trails within Tardree Forest. 

Already one of Northern Ireland’s most popular forests for mountain biking, Tardree’s topography and location make it an attractive forest for trails for all levels of mountain bikers.  If developed appropriately, NIMBA believe Tardree could meet both a local need and attract visitors to the region, especially as part of the wider Northern Ireland mountain biking product that is rapidly becoming a reality on the ground.

This initial meeting explored the benefits of trails in Tardree as well as discussing some of the potential challenges of bringing such a project into reality.  Further meetings will be arranged in the New Year with Council Officers and Councillors and it is hoped that eventually a structured proposal may result which could lead to trails on the ground at some stage in the future.  More information will be provided in due course.
