The aim of this project was to provide a highly specialised mountain bike hire service within the Co Down area, in particular the Mourne Mountains.
Mountain biking is an increasingly popular leisure activity for both local people and tourists, with new mountain bike trails being developed in the Mourne Mountains. Local company Outdoor Concepts noticed a gap in the outdoor pursuits market, in that there was no service to rent high-quality mountain bikes in Northern Ireland. They proposed a door-to-trail service that would provide mountain bikers with bikes, local guidance and transport to the trails.
Funding from DRAP enabled the applicant to purchase a specialised bespoke mountain bike trailer.
