Having a club mountain bike day is something that has been discussed on and off for quite a while now. The date of 30 December was set aside and thankfully a good number turned up at Castlewellan Forest Park to have a go on the trails.
We had a mixture of abilities – some experienced mountain bikers and others relatively new to the discipline. Castlewellan was the perfect venue for this, with the red trail proving to be fast and flowing, without being too challenging. They also have the facility to hire a bike – we had one bike on hire from Life Cycles and would highly recommend.
Hopefully this will become a more regular in future.
