On Saturday 12th March the Friends of Gallagher Park will be celebrating the official opening of the BMX track with a community celebration day.
Planned during the day will be demos and advice from the professional 360 BMX Trick Team and an under 16 year old British Cycling "Go Ride Race”.
The Barnesbury Cycling Club will be promoting the race event for riders under the age of 16 yrs old on the day. Chris Gray from the club said "The event will show the club’s intent to develop the sport of BMX within the park. Riders interested in taking part in either the free coaching or racing will need parental consent, a safe road worthy bike and a helmet. Race entry costs £2 and prizes will be awarded for all age categories from under 8 to 16 years of age. We are looking at developing a new generation of cyclists covering all aspects of cycle sport within the local area".
