Mountain Bike Master Plan
Over the past several years, mountain bike riding has continued to experience exponential growth; including significant growth in mountain bike tourism across Australia. Despite this growth, the supply of high-quality, formal mountain bike infrastructure development has failed to pace with growing user numbers, with many riders turning to informal trail development as a way of accessing the volume and style of trails they wish to ride.
Dirt Art has been engaged by the Toowoomba Regional (TRC) and Lockyer Valley Regional (LVRC) Council's to undertake a consultancy and design project, investigating the potential for further mountain bike trail development on the Toowoomba Escarpment. The project has investigated existing formal and informal trails, trail usage patterns, and has undertaken extensive consultation to establish current demand and usage patterns. Land manager, stakeholder and community consultation has formed a significant component of the project, with the final recommended developments reflecting community wants and needs.
