The Leighton-Linslade BMX and PumpTracks in the county of Bedfordshire are novel in that they are actually made up of three little tracks each found in the corner of three separate parks dotted around the urban town of Leighton-Linslade.
Each being positioned purposefully in the corner of a familiar British urban park they are referred to as Urban Pocket Parks and together they operate as one ecosystem or neighbourhood network with cross usage from riders between each park i.e. the kids jump from one to another be it on the weekends or on their way home or to school etc. They are formally referred to as Off Road Cycle Play sites and are targeted at local BMX and mountain bike riders of all ages.
