35172 Mountain bike trail
We know a great deal of people on the trails are not members of a cycling club. Although our site is geared to non club members, we do believe that a great place to start for a beginner is with a local club. A club is also indispensable if you intend racing. We list over forty Irish mountain bike clubs from Antrim to Wicklow. So If you need to find your local club you can find it on MountainBiking.ie.

Mountain biking existed in Ireland for about 20 years before Coillte developed their professionally designed, purpose built trails. There are a dozens of trails that were used over the years, in some of the most breathtaking landscapes that Ireland has to offer. To ignore them would do Irish Mountain Biking a disservice and it would not accurately reflect mountain biking in Ireland. However as these trails are on privately owned land we cannot disclose their whereabouts and we cannot recommend that anybody uses them. Sufficed to say that these trails are built, used, removed, abandoned or worn away throughout the country regularly. Often their sections are quite elaborate and technical. When used by a novice they are unrideable but when the skilled rider takes to them true skill and athleticism is revealed.
