A Message to all NIMBA Members and Supporters

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

2012 has been a fantastic year for mountain biking in Northern Ireland, with a number of new projects really getting some legs after years of hard work by many people.  The Northern Ireland Mountain Biking Alliance (NIMBA) set up in January 2012 to try and provide a strong cohesive voice for the sport, now that mountain biking is undergoing significant growth.

2013 will be a massive year for our sport across the country, with the opening of new trails at Davagh Forest, Castlewellan, Rostrevor and Barnett's Demesne in Belfast. 

Add to that, the recent news that Blessingbourne Estate has had funding approved to double the length of their trails and add trail-head facilities, and also that many of our councils are exploring opportunities for mountain biking trails in our boroughs, really adds to the excitement and points to a bright future for mountain biking in Northern Ireland.

We'd like to thank you for your support for NIMBA in 2012 as we have tried to create a strong cohesive representative voice for the sport.  We wish all of our members and supporters a great Christmas, a very happy New Year, and every success for what promises to be a tremendous mountain biking 2013!

Best wishes,

Rick McKee, on behalf of the Northern Ireland Mountain Biking Alliance.
