Clark & Kent Contractors were selected to undertake the design and build of a new section of the mountain bike course at Conlig. The facility will be primarily a 'Go Mountain Bike' MTB Instructors coaching area (CyclingScotland – Mountain Biking Proficiency Award).It will not be a public skills area.
