A project to develop a new mountain bike trail centre in Cornwall is looking to raise £10k to fund a feasibility study.

Bikepark Cornwall has identified a site near Bodmin and has the backing of the landowner to establish if the location is a viable site for the project.

The fundraising efforts include a Crowdfunder campaign, and on Sunday December 4, a bike boot fair to be held at Hawksfield on the A39 near Wadebridge.

Bikepark Cornwall’s Greg Robinson said: “We’ve spent months researching possible locations to create a new trail centre suitable for intermediate and advanced riders, and we’re now confident we’ve found a great site.

“There is a lot of support from local riders for a more challenging trail centre, and the next stage is to commission some detailed research. If the findings are favourable, we will be looking to start the process with the landowner and local authorities to develop a trail centre to complement the existing trails at Lanhydrock and Cardinham.”
