New bike trails mark start of Fife country park’s £1.8m investment

Work to build new bike trails in Lochore Meadows Country Park has begun.

It marks the beginning of a much wider investment in the park, which will also see a new visitor centre, golf club house and pavilion being built.

Cllr Mark Hood, Chair of the Cowdenbeath Area Committee and Fife Sports Partnership, recently visited the park to see where the new bike trails will be constructed.

He said: “The bike trails should be completed and ready for people to enjoy by the end of March.

“The current trails are only accessible by experienced mountain bikers but this improvement means that the Council’s Outdoor Education Team will be able to attract more specialist groups, such as vulnerable groups from schools, community learning programmes and the local community.

“We’re set to have a fantastic network of trails that will be a real asset to Lochore Meadows. This work builds on the success of one of Scotland’s biggest bike clubs, the Meedies Bike Club, and is testament to the strong partnership working they have with the Outdoor Education Centre in the Park.”

The bike trail project benefits from sportscotland funding of £69,000 and the golf club house project has also attracted £83,000 funding.
