Clyne MTB meeting

I went to another meeting for the Clyne MTB riders group last night to find out what progress had been made.

For those that don't know the group is working with Swansea City Council (and others) to promote cycling in the Clyne Valley. This includes trail building, BMX tracks and dirt jumps. There's more info at the website

There had been a delay but it looks like things are back on track now, hopefully work will begin on the revised route quite soon. The dirt jumps at Moos ( blog here ) are looking amazing.

The pump track/BMX track is a little up in the air, but progress has been made but I can't say too much until it is confirmed, but rest assured something is being done. If you want any info then call in the shop where I'm hoping to have an updated map of the routes and where everything is.

Here's a pic of Moo's to illustrate the work Dan and his mates have already done

  3. christania’s “lej en ladcykel” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
