The event is managed by CAAN and was a way for people to either experience mountain biking for the first time or to home their skills for a better riding experience. SummitMountainBiking teamed up with the folks at Blessingbourne knowing that we would have some excellent trail riding to demonstrate on and some excellent facilities provided by Colleen and Nick.
On the day we had a full range of eager participants from youngsters as young as 6 to those in their 30's getting back onto a bike for the first time in ages. With a mixture of guided trail riding and some skills tuition on the mtb trails and pump track everyone was ready for refreshments available at the newly opened cafe/"tuck shop" and come the afternoon were riding the trails liked seasoned pros!
As 6 year old John from Clogher Valley said "this is the best day of my life EVER!" Lets hope he has many more!
