British Cycling and Sport England provided significant funding support to the development of Leeds Urban Bike Park (LUBP), working with Leeds City Council and Cycle Pathway, a Community Interest Company to transform a run-down municipal golf course into a vibrant facility. While it’s known to us for its extensive riding opportunities, it also provides a whole host of other amenities and activities for local residents, including: a café, yoga and exercise sessions,
Anyone is welcome at LUBP, regardless of age, skill level or bike. BMXs and scooters fill the two tracks next to the café while others head off to their respective trails. British Cycling coaching courses for road, BMX and mountain bike also run here.
Jeremy Hayes, international BMX coach, British Cycling Coach Tutor and the driving force behind the development of LUBP, said: “It’s great to get this award for everyone who has contributed to this facility, the hard work which our staff and volunteers put in every day so our customers and the local community get a fantastic experience, this is for them.”
