New experiences – creating memories

Fabulous finish for our East Kent and Medway teams who celebrated completing their tough 12 week core programme last week, with BMXing at Cyclopark, Gravesend as part of their adventure training.

The participants had the opportunity to cycle round a 330 metre first class race track which is designed for both beginners and seasoned professionals.


Following a 1 hour induction session carried out by an experienced BMX coach which covered basic track skills and ensured all the riders who ranged from novices to those who belonged to local clubs had a complete understanding of the track, the riders were able to enjoy the demands of the race track. There was a focus on rider technique for the more confident riders in the group.

Unsurprisingly, this was a very popular activity with accompanying school staff staff, Challenger Troop instructors and the participants, many of whom commented “we had the best time today” and “when can we come back?” Thank you to all the staff at Cyclopark for helping us provide such a memorable opportunity for our participants.
