The sweaty smiles said it all – a great big thumbs up for the new Ingleburn Reserve Mountain Bike Trail Loop that opened just in time for the school holidays.

Mayor George Greiss said the trail would be a great addition to the popular riverside reserve.

“Ingleburn Reserve is one of Campbelltown’s best bushland reserves and a popular location for families on weekends so it’s great to see the facilities here enhanced by this exciting new mountain bike trail,” Cr Greiss said.

The 770 metre trail has been installed based on community suggestions for new attractions to the site and includes a series of jumps, rollovers, rock gardens and berms and for beginner and intermediate riders, built by Joshua and the team from from Angry Goat Trails construction company.

 “The trail is designed to be family friendly and will suit a variety of skills and abilities,” Cr Greiss said.

The $90,000 project is the first part of a $1.5 million project to upgrade the riverside reserve’s facilities, trails, vegetation and accessibility in response to community feedback to consultation held in 2020.

The planned project includes new picnic facilities including seating, tables and barbeques, as well as improvements to the path network to enhance accessibility to people with prams or wheelchairs.

As part of NSW Bike Week, council will also be hosting two training sessions over the holiday period for young people who want to improve their mountain bike riding skill on Wednesday 28 September and Monday 3 October.
