Rebound - East Dunbartonshire
Rebound is a not for profit organisation aimed at building a mountain bikepark in Lennoxtown near Glasgow. Its aim is to provide a mountain bike park catering for beginners through to experts which, in turn, should benefit the local community by increasing health, jobs and community spirit. The group currently consists of mountain bikers and members of the local community who share the same vision to develop the local community through sport.
The bikepark will be located within Lennox Forest in Lennoxtown and will contain a variety of trail features. A safe and fun environment will be created, whilst giving aspiring mountain bikers the chance to develop their talent. Rebound plans to hold events and competitions, as well as developing a club structure with a race team that will compete in various races. This club would consist of up and coming talent from the local area.
Upon successfull completion of the bike park Rebound aims to develop the project to contain more mountain bike trails and facilities for other outdoor sports. The project also aims to offer coaching, club discounts and basic bike parts such as tyres and tubes.
