Jo Swinson, MP for East Dunbartonshire met with the team behind new plans to build a mountain bike attraction in the local community
Jo met with members of the Scottish charity Rebound and local stakeholders as they discussed plans to fund and build mountain bike tracks in the Lennox Forest. The goal is to build an outdoor centre with trail centre, bike park, walker trails and more, that can also be used for competitions. Alastair Foggo, chair of Rebound presented an outline of the project and was followed by a presentation from the architects.

Commenting, Jo Swinson said:
“So much hard work has already gone into this initiative and the potential, including the increase to local tourism, is inspiring. Plus it’s the perfect complement to all the great work on cycling that’s already been done in the community. It’s a big project but definitely worthwhile and I am happy to give the team my full support.”
