OFF-ROAD cycling enthusiasts are gearing up for the opening of a new biking venue in York on Friday.
City of York Council’s new mountain biking area at Rawcliffe Country Park is a series of challenging jumps, banks and turns for bikers of all levels, and the 70 metre inner circuit and the easier 140 metre outer track are linked to each other and the rest of the park.
The scheme is part of the Big Lottery play programme that also funded the climbing boulders at Rawcliffe Country Park.
During the big launch day people can wheel or walk along and take part in a host of events.
There will be riding skills courses for youngsters aged eight – 14-years-old from 10am-3pm which must be booked in advance with Grit Track and Trail at email@example.com
