Publish date:

British Cycling has congratulated Southwark Council and its Olympic legacy following the launch of a new national standard BMX track in Burgess Park, London.

The £1.1 million track officially opened on Friday 16th, with Olympic hopeful Tre Wyhte and the Peckham BMX Club among the first to have a spin. Funding came from British Cycling, Mayor of London: Sports Facilities Fund and London Marathon Trust.

CK Flash, Peckham BMX club founder, said: "This is without a doubt nothing short of a blessing to Peckham BMX. I’m overwhelmed by the support from local people and businesses and I’m so grateful to Southwark Council, British Cycling and all the other funders who helped make our dreams.”

Former local resident Tre Whyte and promising Olympic rider, said: “I started out training at the Peckham track so I know what this means to the club and to young people in the area. Personally, it would have been amazing to have such a great facility in my local area when I was growing up. I’m sure so many young people are going to want to take up BMX riding, it’s a great sport and I’m proud that the borough I grew up in is investing in it in such a major way.”
