National BMX Centre Open Day


21st July 2011

The UK's first national BMX centre has announced plans to open its doors two days before its official launch.

On Saturday 6th August 2011, BMX enthusiasts will be able to visit the National BMX Centre in Manchester between 10.00am - 4.00pm on to see the new BMX centre before everyone else.

• Take part in a leisure cycle ride round Philips Park and Clayton Vale
• Ride on the BMX outdoor circuit
• Participate in Go Ride
• Watch and participate in skateboard displays in the public realm space
• Have your bike checked over by a qualified mechanic

In addition the new indoor BMX Centre is now open for school and community bookings during term time from 8th August 2011.  Gold, Silver and Bronze packages are available for schools which all have clear exit routes into BMX as a sport as well as for activity.

The goal is to target schools, community groups, youth and commercial areas within the community to provide information on BMX programmes, events, community access and more as well as being the most accessible facility for the community.

If you would like to talk through the project further, please call on 0161 223 2244 and ask for Sam Foakes or Susan Williams.
