AMBITIOUS plans for a green biking initiative in Lennox Forest have been praised.

Jo Swinson, MP for East Dunbartonshire, recently met with the team behind new plans to create a mountain bike attraction near Lennoxtown.

She spoke to Scottish charity Rebound and local partners as they discussed plans for mountain bike tracks in Lennox Forest. The goal is to build an outdoor centre with trail centre, bike park, walker trails and more, that can also be used for competitions.

Ms Swinson said: “So much hard work has already gone into this initiative and the potential, including the increase to local tourism, is inspiring.”
