Description

The 30yo BMX Track has been resurrected with a new project aiming to create a dirt park open for a wide range of riders and skill level. At present the dual line BMX track runs down off Duncan street into a rolling 1/2ft step down followed by a split 1/2ft step up table top into a dual line right hand burm. Pedaling into the back straight consisting of a 1ft double into a 3ft table top followed by a 4ft split step down table top into a right hand burm. A couple cranks to finish into a triple set of 1ft doubles and a short 10m push back upto the start. The 6ft dirt jumps are well under way, 2 1/2 complete out of a proposed set of 4 so is definately a project in progress but hope to have them finished when it's a little drier. This vision is being overseen by Tawa Off Road Riders Club (TORRC)in conjunction with Wellington City Council (WCC)
