Our good friends at GibbonIT got some fantastic footage of the new skills area at South Barrule when we had a short spell of great weather!
Here’s what we managed to create. Enjoy.
Working closely with DEFA to create this dedicated facility to allow adults and children to hone their skills. Suitable for both beginners and advanced riders, this facility replicates features found on the Isle Of Man trails. Designed by Pedal To Progression coach Adam Henderson, the majority of the build was done by Steve Collins with help from volunteers.
The Manx Lottery Trust, Isle Of Man Sport and the End to End Legacy jointly funded the project.
Details of the day (Sat 8th July 2017):
– Try a demo bike from the local bike shops
– Advice from the Island Games Mountain Bike Team
– Opportunity to find out more about the MMBC
– Free coaching clinics from local mountain bike coach Adam Henderson
Please park sensibly at the Main South Barrule Car Park. Or better still RIDE to the venue!
The skills area is located approx. 300m from the main car park as you ride towards to the South of the Island. It will be marked clearly.
