Our new pump track has been developed with support from Cycle Sport Pendle (CSP) as part of the Steven Burke Hub.

The new 400m pump track opened on Saturday 12 May 2018. Pendle’s double Olympian gold medallist, Steven Burke, was at the event at the Hub which is named in his honour.

People of all ages from 6 or 7 and up can now try out the new 400 metre BMX track for free.

There’s an inner track for beginners and also a small trials bike area with obstacles for cyclists to practice their bike tricks.

The pump track builder Dirtworks BMX, a British Cycling approved pump track contractor, has created a very unique pump track using the natural environment as a feature.

The BMX pump track is the new home of Cyce Sport Pendle’s Pendle Panthers BMX Group which welcomes kids from the age of 6 or 7, depending on their skills.

Pendle Panthers BMX group meets every Saturday morning at 9.30am at the clubhouse at the Steven Burke Sports Hub.

For bookings and more information contact parks@pendle.gov.uk or tel: 661600.

The new BMX track is located between Nelson,  Barrowford  and Colne and can be found off Cravendale Avenue, Nelson and via Wilton Street,  Barrowford BB9 8PU.
