Northern Ireland’s mountain bike trail builders have put in some serious overtime in the last 12 months, cutting slick new singletrack and revamping old favourites.
Now those trail builders can put their feet up, grab a beer and consider it a job well done, because MountainbikeNI.com have made a brilliant video of the new trails, which range from downhill runs at Rostrevor to family-friendly green runs at Barnett Demesne. You can check it out here:
