Scottish MTB Strategy 2019 - 2025

The Scottish MTB Strategy 2019-2025 was developed as a strategy for a nation.

It takes account of everyone with a stake in Scottish mountain biking, whether they be riders, Scottish Government & national agencies, the tourism industry, or product designers and manufacturers.

Using our decade of experience working in the industry, our role was to lead the development of the strategy and integrate the views of all stakeholders.

To deliver the strategy, DMBinS will play a prominent role in many of the actions. We also, at a national level, bring together the partners of the MTB Consortium to oversee the delivery of the key actions and enable partnerships to work together. This ensures that the effort, and any funding invested, produces the most widespread impact.

The action plan outlined in the strategy is monitored three times per year by the MTB Consortium, with all partners updating their actions from the previous period and detailing all their future actions.

This helps partnership working, provides accountability to the Scottish Government and other national agencies, and helps identify any gaps in what we need to deliver to meet our aims and objectives.

After 10 years, the position of Scottish mountain biking on the world stage is strong, but we know it can be stronger. The strategy helps all those involved in Scottish mountain biking to effectively plan a sustainable future for our sport, create a world class trail network, increase the economic impact for our country, ensure Scotland is the international destination of choice, and tackle Scotland’s issues of health and wellbeing.

We are proud to play our part in its delivery.
