Our bike park proposal is stalled and we need as many voices as possible to ensure we are heard. This bike park is good for our town, our youth and our collective health. It’s also going to be great fun and a major new attraction for our town.

Sign, share and contact. Three simple ways you can help make this project a reality!

Sign our petition calling for the park to be built

Make a poster and share on social media

  1. Make a poster or sign from a bit of cardboard or paper with the phrase “Build The Bike Park” on it
  2. Take a photo of you, your kids and anyone else with your bikes and sign
  3. Post it to social media with the hashtags #mtbky and #BuildTheBikePark. Be sure to tag MTBKY and Kerry County council too
  4. Share with all of your friends and family

Contact local politicians

Contact Tralee M.D. County Councillors asking that they speak to the council on your behalf.

Suggested wording:

“Dear Cllr., I am contacting you re the Tralee Urban Bike Park project which Mountain Biking Kerry presented to you in Jan 2020. I want to see this project progress and am asking you to do what you can to make this amazing project a reality. Best regards.”


Suggested wording:

“Dear Cllr.,

I write you regarding the Tralee Urban Bike Park and the failure to identify a suitable site for development. The project is an objective of the Tralee M.D. Local Area Plan and should be progressed without delay.

The project will engage our youth, attract visitors to our town and be of huge benefit to our collective health and well-being.

I wish to see you sign the petition, as I have, on mtbky.ie calling for the project to progress. I would also like you to make representations to the Council on my behalf asking for a site to be identified, planning permission applied for and funding sought.

Best regards,”
