With almost a thousand votes cast in the End of Year Awards for 2013, the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails powered by Chain Reaction Cycles topped the list of award winners by clinching the much coveted prize for ‘Best Trail Centre in Northern Ireland’ as voted for by members of the public. This highly regarded accolade tops a string of awards for local tourism businesses in Rostrevor and Warrenpoint and is a fitting way to end an incredible year for Rostrevor and the wider Mournes region. The Kilbroney Café which is located at the Rostrevor trailhead won Best MTB-Friendly Café in Northern Ireland with Rostrevor Holidays taking the award for Best Self-Catering Accommodation. Rostrevor’s own Red Bull Foxhunt won the award for Most Popular Mountain Bike Event with Newry based mountain biker, Glyn O’Brien, recognised as Northern Ireland’s MTB Icon of 2013. Mayor of Newry & Mourne District Council Michael Ruane stated, “These awards have clearly highlighted the Rostrevor and Warrenpoint area as an excellent area for Mountain Bikers. “For the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails, associated tourism businesses, event organisers and MTB personalities to win all but two of the Awards is a massive public vote of confidence for this corner of the North of Ireland. “It is clear that this multi-million pound trails development has transformed Rostrevor into a mountain biker’s paradise with local businesses stepping up to the mark and setting the standard for other MTB destinations to aspire to across Ireland. Ruane added, “Congratulations and well done to all winners and perhaps for the 2014 Awards Rostrevor and the surrounding area will aim for success in all 9 awards!” The End of Year Awards were organised by Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland in association with Chain Reaction Cycles, Cycling Ireland, Northern Ireland Mountain Biking Alliance and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
