Access Sport are excited to announce that, through funding from the William Wates Memorial Trust, work has been completed on a major upgrade to the Brixton BMX track in Brockwell Park.

Prior to the works taking place the Brockwell Park BMX track was unfit for purpose. Previous low quality upgrade works had left the track unsuitable and arguably dangerous to use.

Ken Floyde, secretary and founder of the club, said the upgrade would make the facility a safer place for young people and adults to enjoy. The club hopes that the upgrade will attract a great number of young people from the local area to continue building healthy relationships within the community while having fun and keeping fit.

To launch the newly renovated track the club were hosts to the London Youth Games BMX event 2017 with hundreds of young people from across London coming together to compete while representing their boroughs. After a fantastic showing, the proud winners taking the title of this year's London Youth Games were Southwark.

The positive impact of BMX has also gained national attention with the neighbouring Peckham BMX Club recently hitting the headlines in a brilliant article from the Telegraph recognising the 'wholly beneficial effects of biking'.
