Davagh Forest “Stream Trail” Redevelopment

09 Feb 2014 9:20 PM | Rick McKee (Administrator)

Calling all riders of the Stream Trail at Davagh Forest who would like to see it return to its former glory


A meeting to discuss the above project is planned for Monday 24 February 2014, 8:00pm SHARP.  Tea/coffee served from 7:30pm.


Venue is Bluebells Cafe, on the Cookstown/Dungannon Road. 3A Killycolp Rd, Cookstown BT80 9AD


This meeting is for RIDERS.  Its purpose is to finalise plans for the new Stream Trail, in terms of trail style and features. The project is a joint initiative between local riders and Cookstown Council and, if budget allows, may also extend to cover the Plate Trail above the top car park.


Anyone planning to attend the meeting, bring a couple of quid to cover the cost of tea, coffee, biscuits and venue from our hosts.  Do please try to get there in good time, so that we can get the meeting done and dusted and home to our beds to dream of flowing mountain biking trails.


The meeting will be chaired by Rick McKee of NI Mountain Biking Alliance (NIMBA) www.nimba.org.uk, who has been involved in discussing this project with Cookstown Council and local riders in recent months.


Meeting Agenda:


1.    Welcome, background and context of meeting - Rick McKee (10 mins)

2.    Presentation of initial trail plan - Stephen Law and other local riders (30 mins)

3.    Discussion and feedback - All present (30 – 45 mins)

4.    Confirmation of next steps - Rick McKee (5 mins)


The outputs from this meeting will be compiled into a final trail brief that will be submitted to Cookstown Council for discussion and ultimate development.


Just to give an idea of numbers, for the convenience of our hosts at Bluebells, if you hope to attend please be sure and drop an email to Rick@nimba.org.uk.
