This petition is to gauge interest and support for a dedicated mountain bike trail to be developed on the gedling country park site, nottingham.

The county park seated on one of the highest part of nottingham is a potentially perfect site for a single track mountain bike trail due to the 240 acres of open space and the gradient of the land, this would allow several km's of graded low maintenance, high featured trial to but created with ease.

When the park was in its planning stages there was mention of cycle paths would be developed, but it never came to fruition in full, instead they have allowed cyclist to use the marked "footpaths" along with the walkers, joggers etc, this makes it potentially dangerous to both rider and walkers, this is why there is a ban on riding bikes on footpaths in much of the countryside.

Gedling council and friends of Gedling park are currently in the planning stages of adding a £1.2m heritage museum to the site along with a cafe and outdoor seating area, I believe that the addition ammount of visitors to come to the site to use the trails would be great for business for the centre and the local community.

The nearest dedicated mountain bike trails are situated at sherwood pines and cannock chase, both of these venues are busy throughout the year.

i have been in contact with a company called Architrail they have help create and develop several sites around the uk, here's a link to their website so you can have a look at their portfolio and see what potentially could be on your very own doorstep.

I would like you to sign and share this petition and show support to see if we can get the wheels in motion.

thanks for reading and taking interest.
