Calling out to all mountain bike and BMX enthusiasts
Published on 23 November 2022
Don't miss out on having a say on our draft Recreational Facilities for Mountain Bike and BMX Strategy! Community consultation closes shortly at 5pm 1 December 2022.
In 2021, we saw a surge in children and young people embracing bike riding activities on the Mornington Peninsula, with many creating their own jumps within park lands and on roadside reserves.
In response to the community’s interest in bike activities, last year Mornington Peninsula Shire appointed @leisure Planners to prepare a Recreational Facilities for Mountain Bike and BMX Strategy.
The Strategy aims to ensure dirt jumps, skills parks and pump tracks are in appropriate locations and designed together with the community.
We undertook the first round of community consultation last year, asking your input to help us start to develop the Strategy. We wanted to know what was important to you, what an ideal site would look like and where they should be.
Thanks to your contribution we’ve now developed the draft Recreational Facilities for Mountain Bike and BMX Strategy and we want your feedback.
Your insights on the draft Strategy will help shape the future of recreational BMX and mountain biking throughout the Peninsula.
