Tardree Forest - Presentation to Antrim Borough Council 28 March

24 Apr 2013 11:00 PM | Rick McKee (Administrator)
As reported in the Antrim Guardian two weeks ago...

PROPOSALS for 10 km of state-of-the-art mountain biking trails at Tardree Forest ramped up a gear last week when Council's Development and Leisure Committee enjoyed a presentation from the Northern Ireland Mountain Biking Alliance (NIMBA).


The organisation was represented by chairman Rick McKee.  Outlining NIMBA's vision for Tardree, Mr McKee told the chamber: "We believe it has massive potential and could be a really special place for mountain biking trails and other activities.  It is already popular with mountain bikers, has fantastic terrain and already has the key infrastructure in place."
He told the members that 2013 is the year that mountain biking is going to 'explode' into the mainstream with four dedicated centres opening across Northern Ireland.
