Innerleithen Mountain Bike Park

This feasibility trailed a number of Mountain Bike Firsts:

First dedicated bike chairlift in the world;

First gravity bike park in the UK;

First fully commercial mountain bike park in Scotland;

Tweed Valley – first international cycling destination in the UK; Tweed Valley – first venue for a cycle festival in Scotland.

This exciting project, working in conjunction with Tourism Resources Company, investigated the potential for a sustainable all year round bike park including uplift facility at the famous Innerleithen MTB Downhill course.

The timber structure is built into the hillside with views up the Bike Park and over the Tweed Valley. Gabion stone walls are used to the lower ground level and a woodchip boiler supplies the heating and hot water.
