Tralee is considering creating an urban bike park, similar to facilities in Lisbon and Glasgow, a council meeting has heard.
A one-acre site with room for expansion is all that is required for a world-class urban bike park facility for local families as well as tourists, according to plans put to the meeting by a representative of Mountain Biking Kerry.
Meetings with councillors and officials have already taken place, the Tralee Municipal Meeting heard.
Kerry hosted three major events in mountain biking in 2019. And while “the explosion in mountain biking” has been recognised by the Government with a €13.6 million investment in national bike trails, none of the money went to Kerry.
