Cycling Ulster have welcomed the redevelopment of cycling facilities at Gosford Forest Park.

Cycling Ulster were represented by Tommy McCague (Chairman), Maurice McAllister (Executive Officer) and Gary Lavery (Membership Development Officer) at the launch of new cycling trails on Friday 7th December.

The Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council facility has 16km of walking and cycling trails and has underwent substantial regeneration.

Speaking at the launch, Mr McCague said:

“These state of the art facilities are a great asset to the area. The new cycling trails are part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of Gosford Forest Park.

“The ABC Council are to be commended for developing this project. The joined up approach with others such as Disability Sport NI who are also investing in equipment and storage facilities will enable greater access for disabled users.

“I want to congratulate all those involved in bringing this project to fruition and look forward to cyclists of all ages and abilities making use of these excellent trails. Cycling Ulster will continue to lobby for other councils to work on investing in similar infrastructure  for the enhancement of cycling in the province.”
