Cir­cuit ca­pac­ity boost

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

HILLING­DON’S cy­cle cir­cuit is get­ting a much needed ca­pac­ity in­crease thanks to the con­struc­tion of two link roads to give the op­tion of two cir­cuits from the ex­ist­ing one.

The cir­cuit was opened in 1995 and is one of the old­est Bri­tish Cy­cling con­structed cir­cuits and the chair­man of the Hilling­don Cir­cuit Users Group, Stu­art Ben­stead, is grate­ful of the Hilling­don Bor­ough’s sup­port.

He said, “We are most grate­ful that Bri­tish Cy­cling have ob­tained the sup­port of the Lon­don Bor­ough of Hilling­don to make this £120,000 pro­ject pos­si­ble.

“The two cir­cuits will en­able all user groups to present a range of ex­tra coach­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties within the time avail­able.”

Di­rec­tor of coach­ing, education and de­vel­op­ment for Bri­tish Cy­cling, John Mills, said: “Hilling­don is the old­est of the Bri­tish Cy­cling con­structed cir­cuits so it is not sur­pris­ing that it needs up­grad­ing to sup­port such a heavy pro­gramme of use.”
