Health

Mountain biking can play a role in making Scotland healthier. By increasing participation, through targeted programmes, we aim to help make our amazing country a healthier and happier nation.

Recovery

Recovery - We are breaking new ground by delivering a holistic approach to positive health outcomes through an innovative Mountain Bike Trail Therapy programme.We wanted Scotland to be a place where everybody thrives. We want to reset how Scotland thinks about wellbeing and health. Our Trail Therapy programme is something we are exceptionally proud of and have worked hard to secure funding to be able to pilot, then roll out in South Lanarkshire and Tayside. Recovery is our film about the programme. The film focuses on the journey of James, a participant on our Trail Therapy programme, who has used mountain biking to accelerate and sustain his recovery from mental ill-health. The film interviews and captures the feelings of the participant, a mental health professional and Paul our Trail Therapy leader, who continue to help support James's recovery journey. Our hope is that this stunning film by Joe Norledge and Reuben Bakker-Dyos, and supported by Trek Bicycles, will promote the benefits of the programme far and wide and attract donations which will help us (DMBinS) unlock the potential for it to be rolled out nationwide.Film by Joe Norledge and Reuben Bakker-Dyos;

Presenting Nyasha Makusa #MTBFORALL

We first met Nyasha at the Fort William World Cup this year when he approached us, showed us some of his films, and asked if there was any way he could get involved with us and help spread good messaging as a rider of colour. We felt this was so important and really wanted to give him a voice so we asked him to feature in our Summer campaign, #MTB4All.

Enjoy his riding and articulate thoughts.
