Bike Track.

Here on West Park we are very lucky to have a purpose built, expertly designed bike track, built in 2007.

This is no ordinary dirt track with a few mounds of earth piled on top! Keen BMX and Mountain bike riders have used their skills and years of experience to create a track which is accessible to beginners, but challenging to more practised riders too.

Open to bikers young and old... But particularly beloved by teenagers looking to improve their skills.

A new community group called 4Motion Darlington have just secured funding to run coaching sessions at the track and set up a club. They have the bikes and all the kit you need if you don't have it yourself and the coaching sessions will be run by a British Cycling qualified coach. To find out more go to

And keep an eye out for the West Park Cycle Races. This event was held for the first time in July 2012, and welcomed both experts and newcomers. To see some pictures from this fantastic event, click here!
