A trail-development plan is being put together to assess opportunities for mountain bike trails and facilities in Derroura and Derryclare in the Inagh Valley, Co. Galway.
A group of local riders have formed the Connemara Mountain Bike Alliance to develop trails in the area. Funding for the development plan has been awarded from the Forum Connemara Leader programme through Oughterard Community Partnership. UK trail-designer Pete Laing (of Glentress and Golspie fame) has visited the area to work on it and assess the options. The local Coillte forestry manager is also involved and being very supportive.
