The final two stages of the Narooma Mountain Bike project through the Bodalla State Forest have begun with the attendance by Federal member for Eden Monaro, Kristy McBain, to announce the start of construction on Stages 2 and 3 of the project.
Ms McBain has long held the vision that the Far South Coast would become a 'mountain biking hub' in Australia telling the Bay Post:
"All across Eden-Monaro towns are benefiting from mountain bike tourism as this sport continues to grow and more visitors come to our region," she said.
"I was thrilled to support the Narooma Mountain Bike Club's application for funding because I know the long-term economic benefit these mountain bike tracks will bring to Narooma.
"With fantastic mountain bike tracks across our region, when these works are complete next year we have the opportunity for the South Coast and Snowies to become a real mountain biking destination which will be a huge help in attracting people to our piece of paradise during off-peak periods."
