Bumpy ride wel­comed by riders

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

A MOD­ERN bike pump track has re­placed the old BMX fa­cil­ity at Col­lege Park.

The City of Ned­lands re­opened the track and youth recre­ation cen­tre ear­lier this month in time for the school hol­i­days.

Com­mon Ground Trails de­signed and con­structed the track in con­sul­ta­tion with the WA Moun­tain Bike As­so­ci­a­tion and WestCy­cle.

Mayor Max Hip­kins said the multi-gen­er­a­tional track was a val­ued ad­di­tion to the City’s youth fa­cil­i­ties.

“The City is for­tu­nate to have many beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral parks, so to have the track in a nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment is an ad­van­tage for the City,” Mr Hip­kins said.

Lo­cal bike rider Kait­lyn Tjahyadi (10) said she re­ally liked the new track.

“It is very fun and has lots of dif­fer­ent ways you can go and lots of bumps,” she said.
