Cornwall BMX Racing Club - National Standard BMX Racing Track in Cornwall - IT IS NOW YOUR TURN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!! SUN, SAND, SURF and BMX!

by Mark E in Cornwall

IMPORTANT: We have set up this Crowdfunder to request your donations  / pledges in return for rewards, so that we are able to complete the Final Planning Application and required land surveys for this new track. Your money will pay for each of these costs as they arise and we hope to complete the process before January 2017. We already have completed a Pre-Planning Application and hold a Letter of Intent for Lease  of the land from the council. We have the backing of our local MP, Cornwall Council and various local councillors.

This project has been set up to build a National Standard BMX Race Track on land at Carn Brea in Cornwall which will put the county clearly on the map for the future of BMX Racing. At this stage we need your help to raise money which will be used as matched-funding to secure the larger funding required to build this fantastic new facility.

We have worked really hard to get to this stage of this project - IT IS NOW YOUR TURN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

CPIR is one of the most deprived areas within England, with 23.9 per cent of the population living in a deprived state, including 22.8 per cent of children and therefore would benefit from access to an affordable sports facility. Almost a quarter of children leave primary school classed as obese, the highest in mid-Cornwall; this facility will provide new opportunities for these residents to engage within sport.

This site has been chosen as it provides good membership catchment from nearby neighbourhoods, schools and colleges, and therefore customers of housing providers and other organisations. These circumstances, combined with easy access and affordability of the club membership will allow continued sustainable growth of the club and sport in Cornwall. This project will provide a national class sports facility within Cornwall which can be used by residents to ensure that riders are encouraged to meet their own individual sporting aspirations.

Provision of a new high quality facility with access to qualified coaches, mentors and role models from across the UK and Europe will clearly help encourage new volunteer roles and valuable social interaction, bringing positive impacts on health, wellbeing and antisocial behaviour within this needy area.

There is substantial evidence to show that such engagement brings wider benefits in terms of health, wellbeing and mental health improvement and will strengthen social value outcomes for the area.

Cornwall BMX Racing Club is a well-established racing club with a growing membership and significant record of achievements at local, Regional, National and International levels. The club is British Cycling affiliated and has Go-Ride accreditation, with British Cycling qualified in-house coaches that provide regular training sessions.

We are based in the beautiful county of Cornwall in the south west of England and want you to come and experience all of our fantastic assets whilst also being able to ride a top class BMX Race facility - SUN, SAND, SURF and BMX RACING....what more could you ask for?

This new track will become a centre of excellence over time with exemplar National facilities to allow the continuous development of riders. The track will support riders by providing qualified coaches who are able to inspire and develop riders to meet their own goals and targets. Whilst the track’s key objective is to provide National BMX Racing within easy reach of the main conurbations of Camborne, Redruth, Pool and Truro, it will be developed and located to attract all levels of riders from wider-reaching areas.

The track will act as a hub of activity and capture your aspirations whether you want to simply fun free-ride with friends, become a Cornish Champion, compete at Regional level, take on the National BMX Race Series or represent Great Britain at World and international level.

This project is being planned to include employed roles that will help to maintain and manage the facility including opening and security with opportunities for maintaining the area within apprenticeship programmes. Once running the facility will bring new customers to the area, some combining holidays with BMX racing, creating new opportunities for the local economy. This national standard facility will provide a high quality arena for training and development of local riders to meet their aspirations and capabilities.

Cornwall BMX Racing Club understands the financial pressures on families within this area and provides activities at extremely affordable costs, backed up by low cost loan bikes and equipment for those without. As the club grows there will be demands for the purchase of more BMX racing bikes and equipment within Cornwall which, when combined with the repairs and maintenance servicing needs, should show some growth within local cycling commerce.

PLEASE REMEMBER - Without support this project cannot happen - you are funding the final Planning Permission costs to top up £10,000+ we have already secured and there is a risk of not obtaining Planning Permission after spending these funds.
