Last Tuesday saw the start of a new project which will hopefully help Birmingham Monarchs as well as local cycling in the area.
Birmingham Monarchs have been in talks recently with the local BMX complex with hopes of a possible move but also the two clubs are looking to work together and the beginnings of that was seen at Perry Park.
Birmingham BMX Club brought a dozen keen riders who took to the shale and took to the sport like a duck to water. Under experienced eyes of Steve Hodgkinson, Mark Winwood and Phil Widdas the riders with the Monarchs youngsters went through the paces on a late summers evening.
At the end of the session both clubs were very positive about the event with dialogue also going between the duo looking to hold more sessions in the coming weeks and next year.
A big thanks to Steve, Mark, Paul and Phil to helping during the evening and also to Mark Sleigh and the BMX Club for taking the time out to come along on Tuesday.
