Coombe Dean are keen to support active outdoor activities beyond our site, so please take a moment to read the following campaign by a local resident, and sign if this is something you also wish to support:
The Plymstock area has long suffered from a lack of facilities for our youth.
Cycling has long been a rite of passage for the young!
We aim to combine the love of cycling in a fun community area, by building an asphalt pump track facility for all to use.
Pump tracks are both playgrounds and training facilities for bikers, skateboarders or scooter riders of ALL skill levels.
Asphalted tracks are hotspots for all kinds of riders who seek a fun and/or action-filled sports experience. Riders enjoy practicing the basic skills of carrying momentum, improving balance and building speed by using their arms and legs to pump their bike/board/scooter around the track. As riders improve their skills, the tracks are designed to provide the option for more challenges with increased speed and skill, without needing to change the construction. A feature that a 5-year-old can roll through can be used as a set of jumps for a professional.
We need your support to sign and pass the word around to get this going.”
