Billy Cheetham (you know super fast downhiller a few years back, not sure if he’s still racing now) just sent me an email about the Campion Hill cycling track in Royal Leamington Spa.
Here’s what he told us:
“Just to let you know about the exciting new changes that we have made at Campion Hill cycling track in Royal Leamington Spa.
As you may know this facility had fallen into disrepair and since the summer of 2008 with help from Warwick district council, members of Royal Leamington Spa 4x have spent many hours bringing the track back to life and making a whole host of improvements.
Whilst these have been taking place more and more local riders have been using the track, helping get the kids off the street by providing a great venue and something they can enjoy.
Work is now nearly complete and the club is delighted to be holding its first event at Campion hills which will be a race for all comers of all ages allowing them to get involved in the sport and to have a fun day out.
We hope to start club nights after March 29th when we have more light in the evening, including gate nights, fund raisers, and trips away.
We shall be helping the cyclists along the way, helping develop their cycling handling skills and safety awareness as well as hosting a regular fun race series for all people to get involved in.
Rls4x first event is March 29th 2009 at Campion hills, Royal Leamington Spa
