Blue Derby Income

An interesting insight from the March 2021 Dorset Council meeting minutes indicating that the Council received a total of $190,000 in revenue from the Blue Derby bike trails in the 2019-20 financial year.

The breakdown provided was:

  • Sponsorship -$84,8622
  • Hire of trails -$2,080
  • Donation boxes -$4,381
  • Sale of souvenirs (merchandise) -$21,130

Additional revenue was raised as follows:–

  • Break O’Day Council annual contribution -$25,000 (trail repair and maintenance –Blue Tier)
  • Derby Waste Levy -$20,814
  • Shower Revenue -$18,838
  • Net profit from Australian MTB Summit Event -$13,330

Unfortunately there does not seem to be any matching disclosure over the expenses over that period.

The 2018-19 Annual Report shows the contract with World Trails for building Stage 2 pf the trails was for $1.5million.
