Attention Mountain Bikers,
The Dublin Mountains partnership is extending its volunteer ranger programme to encompass mountain biking. This is an important step for the Dublin Mountains Partnership and gives us the opportunity to be involved in helping to manage recreation through out the Dublin Mountains.
From a mountain biking perspective it is important that we get involved and help influence how recreation activities are managed going forward. We would like to encourage any mountain bikers who uses the area and would be interested in getting involved and giving something back to contact the DMP. Below is the official press release and website address.

|Join the Dublin Mountains Partnership Volunteer Ranger Service!
We are recruiting active, enthusiastic and committed walkers, hikers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts to join our established Ranger Team in Spring 2010. The Dublin Mountains Partnership was established in 2008 to improve the recreation experience on public lands in the Dublin Mountains. The Volunteer Ranger Service is a vital aspect of the project and duties include improving access, trail work, way marking and helping to improve visitors experience to the wonderful resource we have on our doorstep.
We hope to establish a mountain bike patrol within the ranger service in 2010, potential rangers who participate in mountain biking and are keen to join the service should apply.
Would you like to be involved? Check out http://www.dublinmountains.ie/volunteer_ranger_service/volunteer_ranger_service/ for full details and an application form. Closing date February 28th, 2010.
