The safety fence is gone and we are so pleased to be opening the 500m perimeter track and skills track for all those eager bike enthusiasts...We are so pleased to be opening the 500m perimeter track and skills track for all those eager bike enthusiasts that have been waiting so patiently for the the fence to come down and to be able to get in there and give it a go.
As a double bonus, the perimeter track will also be used for our school cross country tomorrow!
Please note, that the tracks have been designed as a one-way system so are to be ridden in an anti-clockwise direction to ensure good traffic flow, safety of users and logical approach to the see-saw in the skills track.
At this time, where possible, we ask that activity remains on the tracks while the surrounding grounds are still recovering. We also have a few areas taped off where replacement grass is getting established. Construction of the pump track is still underway, so this area with the glo-mesh fence around it is still out of bounds.
We encourage students to bring their bikes and helmets to school, and for those that don't have these, or on days they are unable to have theirs at school, we have ordered a small fleet of bikes and helmets in a range of sizes, so we hope to make these available soon. (Students must wear their sunhat/beanie with the loan school safety helmets)
Sponsor recognition signage is underway and once the pump track is completed we look forward to inviting you along to an official grand opening - until then we hope you enjoy!
