New helpers needed at Aboyne Bike Park

editorial image

Aboyne Bike Park is currently looking for individuals to get involved in the management committee and maintenance of the Park.

Opened in 2013, Aboyne Bike Park was put in place at Bellwood Community Woodland after young people had requested for years for more facilities in the area.

In particular, for alternatives to traditional competitive sporting activities.

Aboyne Bike Park Association began as a grass roots response to these requests, driven by local MTB enthusiasts & their parents.

The project received widespread support & a state of the art mountain bike facility was created by Aviemore designer Paul Masson (who also designed Laggan Wolftracks & later Tarland Trails).

The bike park, open-all-hours & free to use, comprises 2 short downhill trails, pump-track & jumps area.

It is now owned by Mid Deeside Limited & managed by a voluntary committee, Aboyne Bike Park Association, who check & maintain the trails.

In order to keep the project alive new committee members are needed as the current committee have all been involved since the start of the project.

This is not an onerous task! A few meetings per year and involvement in biennial maintenance sessions is all that is currently required.

Aboyne Bike Park Association is holding an AGM on Tuesday, March 22, at 7.30pm in Aboyne Community Centre Canteen.

All interested individuals are invited.
