York mountain bikes centre set to open
Bookmark and Share
Those who love riding mountain bikes may want to take advantage of a new mountain biking centre being opened in York.

The City Council's Rawdon Park facility will open its gates this Friday (February 17th), the York Press reports.

It has a 70-metre inner circuit and an outer track measuring 140 metres, with funding for them coming from the lottery cash awarded to develop the park.

The day when the facility opens will see a range of activities being provided by the council and sustainable transport charity Sustrans, which are hoped to attract plenty of youngsters on their half-term holiday.

The council cabinet member for education, children and Young People's services Janet Looker said: "This is a superb facility on which off-road cyclists or mountain bikers can hone their skills, less experienced cyclists can build confidence, as well as regular cyclists - like me - to simply have fun."

While York is improving its offering for bikers, Sustrans is backing a campaign by the Times to improve them in other urban areas around Britain.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801291708-ADNFCR
