Fed up because there are no trails to ride in your area? BIKEmagic member Darren Groom and his mates at Cherwell Jump and Dual (CJD - gettit?), from Oxfordshire decided that if the trails weren't as they wanted, they'd get it sorted himself.

"We applied for a lottery grant to allow us to build a dedicated dual/quad slalom track, and things are going really well" Darren told us. "We now have a site, the council are 100% behind us and we have just put out our first newsletter to try and get some revenue to cover a couple of months rent on the land so work can begin!".

It's not just Darren and his mates that are going to benefit from the new jumps and lumps either, "Anyone in the area who is interested can contact me on my email address, and I will send them an application form for 6months membership which will start from the opening day at the track, which is available for the give away price of £15.00"

As well as the track that the council have assisted them with, they have been given the free run of Drayton school BMX track, which is now being lovingly crafted in a full on jump spot and trials area, so, they have something for most abilities of rider.

If you're in the Oxfordshire area, or you want to find more out about getting help building trails drop Darren a email.
