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. 

Vandyke Road Jumps

  • A range of jumps varying in scale and technicality aimed at developing your jumping skills. The starting ramp heads down fast to two jumps and there are four lines each one bigger and tougher, helping you to develop bit by bit. 

Danes Field Pump Track

  • The Pump Track is specifically constructed to be a flowing trail made up of a series of trail features including jumps and berms. The trail is designed to develop a rider's rhythm and flow. Working the transitions (up, down slopes and corners) to develop a fluid and relaxed riding style.

Columbia Drive Pocket Trails

  • A small BMX/Mountain Bike Trail (Pocket Bike Park) with a range of trail sections featuring berms and jumps.

Other Stuff

  • They were designed and project managed by the CTC (Ian Warby) on behalf of GoCycle.
