UNIQUE TRAIL GETS COUNCIL FUNDING

A unique new mountain bike trail is being created in the Yorkshire Dales thanks to a £50,000 grant from Richmondshire District Council.

The Swale Trail – which will run through Swaledale from Reeth to Keld – is aimed at young mountain bikers and families who want to ride together.

It will be promoted to people with mobility difficulties and families with buggies – and as a ‘multi-user trail’ can also be used by walkers and horse riders.   And 75% of the 12 mile track will be traffic free.
