The aim of the Management Project is to enable the company to become self-sustaining and not be wholly reliant on volunteers. In order to adequately manage the long-term, continuous program of trail-maintenance that will be required to ensure that the trails are maintained to Natural Resources Wales’ (NRW) standards, especially when they handle a significant increase in the amount of traffic, as well as delivering the other projects set out by the company’s vision, we aim to be able to pay a dedicated Project Manager to oversee the day-to-day running of the project, providing a more professional approach and allowing volunteers to step-back from the management of the business.
This is a significant, long-term project that would employ a project manager for 2 days (15 hours) a week on a two-year contract to deliver the vision of the company. Therefore we are looking for an investment of around £20,000 per year for two years. This project would particularly suit an organisation looking to implement or expand a Corporate Social Responsibility programme. As a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, Beicio Mynydd Dyfi MTB are ideally suited to this type of investment. The vision of company and the projects that are planned mean that this is a long-term project that will deliver benefits beyond just providing mountain bike trails in the Dyfi Forest. This project will allow a whole generation of people in the Dyfi valley access to the physical health and mental well-being benefits of cycling in the open landscape of the near-wilderness, while also bringing sustainable tourism to an area of social deprivation and providing direct and indirect employment opportunities to local communities.
