Mountain bike trail consultation starts
Bookmark and Share
Plans for a mountain biking trail in north Wales are being made available for public consultation this week.

Community group Antur Stiniog is seeking to create a mountain bike centre of international standard at Blaenau Ffestiniog at a cost of £1.3 million, the Caernarfon Herald reports.

Development officer for the group Ceri Cunningham said: "This consultation period is designed to show the public what we aim to achieve with the bike trails and get their opinions."

He added that as a planning application is "imminent", he hoped the public will back the plans.

One aim is to develop tourism and employment opportunities in the area, which could include retail opportunities for those selling cycling gear.

Britain already has a number of mountain biking trails, with world championship events being staged at the Nevis Range trail near Fort William.

Located on the side of Aonach Mor, the Scottish course is served by facilities such as a restaurant and cable cars.
