Olympics Inspired BMX Track Opens In Waltham Forest
by Henry Peacock
Access Sport and the East London Bicycle Organisation (ELBO) are delighted to announce the completion of the new BMX track in Waltham Forest. The official track launch will be held at the Cheney Row Open Space on Saturday, August 11th from 2pm - 7pm.
BMX Legacy Project
This new track, and the resident BMX club ELBO are part of Access Sport’s BMX Legacy project, inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games. The BMX Legacy Project has established five new community-focused BMX clubs and tracks in the Olympic host boroughs. The establishment of these new, volunteer-led clubs in local communities will help ensure a legacy of sport and youth development from the Olympic Games.
Simon Hall, ELBO Club Leader and BMX Coach, expressed his delight after he dedicated over two years of hard work to secure a new BMX track for the people of Waltham Forest:“I’m delighted that we finally have a BMX track in Waltham Forest to be proud of. When we were first told by the Council that it wouldn’t be possible to build a track here I was determined to find another way.
Full Track Launch On August 11th
Our club will give young people round here a chance to try a sport that has given so much to me and I hope will give as much to them. The new track will be open to the community, free of charge, and ELBO will be delivering weekly BMX coaching sessions for anyone looking to gain more experience.
