Cuningar Loop Bike Skills Park is a new project that launched in spring 2016. It is a new woodland park opposite to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games athletes’ village on the banks of the river Clyne.

Funded as a legacy project the MTB facilities are part of a wider woodland park project in the Cuningar Loop Activity zone. There is a MTB skills area targeted at MTB, Dirt Jump and BMX bikes. There is a Pump Track, Balance Bike Pump Track and Beginners Skills Area and all built ensuring all levels of riders are catered for from beginners through to skilled users. 

Bike Skills Park

  • Four tracks: a balance track, beginners track, improvers track and pump track for advanced cyclists. 

Groups

Other Stuff
