They hail from Devon, they live to ride, and they go under the name of ‘the moVment’. Notorious to Devon, these local BMX’ers are hosting their third annual ‘moVment Jam’ on 27th and 28th May, at local Decoy Park, with an opportunity for any amateur riders to come along and take part, or simply watch the event unfold.
It all started in 2003, when a small group of likeminded BMX’ers from Newton Abbot came together to create a low key BMX jam in response to their local trails being closed. Following an unprecedented response from the local community, Teignbridge Council resolved to work alongside the BMX enthusiasts to help respond to health and safety concerns, and support their dreams for a better facility ... and so the Movement Jam was born!
Now in its third year, and charging £5 to compete, proceeds from the Jam will go towards “The Decoy Misfits BMX Dirt Club” - a local skate/bmx park for the whole community and with a recent injection of £5,000 from the National Lottery fund and support from the local council, the target of £100,000 is beginning to look very possible.
