BMX ROADSHOW 2012
This event has now occurred. Please see the news article for information on the successful week!
Access Sport is teaming up with Chain Reaction Cycles to host the first ever East London BMX Roadshow in February 2012!
The Access Sport BMX Legacy Project aims to build five new community focused BMX clubs, with five new BMX tracks in the Olympic Boroughs by 2013. The aim of the project is to link in with the Olympic Velopark that will be inherited by the Lee Valley Regional Park to allow young people the opportunity to become involved with cycling in the Capital. The project is being delivered with the support of the Greater London Authority, British Cycling and the five Olympic host boroughs Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
To mark the half-way point of the project and showcase the fantastic new clubs in East London, the BMX Roadshow will be visiiting each borough on the following dates:
Monday 13th Feb: Wednesday 15th Feb: Friday 17th Feb:
Goosely Lane Playing Fields Haggerston Park Hornfair Park

FASTEST LAP COMPETITION
At Newham, Hackney and Greenwich there will also be a chance to compete in the 'Fastest Lap' competition for a chance to win a great Chain Reaction Cycles Prize!
This will include racing against the clock to record your fastest time of a lap of the track.
All ages are welcome however races will be held in four age categories:
Under 8s / Under 12s / Under 16s / Over 16s
N.B. ELBO (Waltham Forest) and Tower Hamlets BMX track completions are still in progress and so a 'Fastest Lap' competition will not be held on these days.
Please wear long sleeves and trousers if you would like to enter the competition.
Bring your own bike or borrow one of ours.
PLEASE NOTE Non-adults will need parental consent and so please download and complete a registration form at http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/zuvvi/media/Go-Ride_Racing_Entry_Form.pdf to bring with you on the day or send to email@example.com
As well as providing fantastic prizes to the winners of the competition, Chain Reaction Cycles will also be making a kind donation to each club. Come along to watch the presentation!
