  Proposed Rhyl Cycling Circuit and BMX Track

Your Support Needed

A potential BMX Competitive Track and Traffic-Free Road Circuit in Rhyl, North Wales, has launched an online petition. It is urging as many people as possible, inside and outside cycle-sport, to sign in support. . It will be the first ever facility of its kind in the North Wales region, and is desperately needed for coaching, training and racing within several disciplines of cycle sport.

The project is being pushed by the Glan Morfa Cycling Association, an amalgam of three local clubs, two councillors, the local residents association and an athletics club.

'This is a much-needed development for Rhyl and the region, in one of the poorest and deprived areas of Wales', commented the group's chairman, Craig Needs.

'We are grateful for the work so far of our volunteers, who have given their time in developing the plans so far, and also for the Denbighshire County Council and funding bodies for working with us. It is also being proposed as a memorial to four of our members killed by an out-of-control vehicle while part of our club run on Sunday 8th January 2006'.

Rhos-On-Sea CC member and GMCA secretary Wayne Jones hopes that it will make up in part for the failed bid for a circuit in Colwyn Bay's Eirias Park. 'Obviously my club were gutted when the original project we fought hard for in Colwyn Bay failed to materialise, but we are more than happy to support and work on this potential facility 10 miles away.'
