Students get a boost from new cycle skills
The BMX Pump track and mountain bike trail built by ‘Bike It’ was provided through contributions from Leicester Local Authority and Public Health. The last six months has allowed Ellesmere College students to access the track to create a dynamic teaching space including cycling, BMX, mountain biking, forestry activities and horticulture.
In addition the College are developing links with Fullhurst School to allow students to access the track as part of their curriculum, and hope in summer to hold a special schools cycling festival. Ellesmere are hoping to hear from the community about how the track could also be used in the future for local residents and the wider community.
