Suffolk Show 2013

The club assisted British Cycling at this years Suffolk Show, allowing hundreds of children the chance to try BMX for the first time.
The weather wasn't fantastic but didn't deter the enthusiasm of all those who took part.
Here's hoping we unearthed a future Olympic champion amongst those taking part!

Suffolk Show does BMX!

If you're going to the Suffolk Show this half term why not search out the British Cycling stand.
They have constructed a temporary (basic) BMX track for the public to try out. They'll be able to provide information & advice about the sport. The club will have a presence at the stand on the Thursday too.
Lets hope for some good weather this year!
