Volunteers needed to build trails at Dalby Forest

The Forestry Commission and Singletraction are urging mountain bikers to re-establish a trail building group at Dalby Forest.

Volunteers are needed to help shape Dalby's trails

Forest chiefs have teamed up with Singletraction – a Yorkshire-based independent voluntary biking organisation – and will host a public meeting in Dalby on Sunday Feburary 19 where riders can find out more how to get involved in shaping the future of the 55km off-road network.

Forestry Commission bike ranger Stuart Startup said: “Over the years bikers have played a massive part in creating mountain routes in Dalby, building trail sections, advising on design and helping run events. We want to re-invigorate the grassroots by getting more people to sign up with Singletraction to claim a stake in Dalby’s development.”

Trail building days will be held on the third Sunday of every month and, for those attending more than two, a free Discovery Pass will be issued by the Forestry Commission, allowing free year-round access to Dalby Forest.

Free entry to Dalby will be granted to people attending the open meeting, which runs from 10am to 1pm in the Courtyard area at Low Dalby. Contact Stuart Startup for more information on 07909 880325 – or email stuart.startup@forestry.gsi.gov.uk
