By handing over a key to Mike by Mr. Boetzkes of the local council, the new place was officially opened on Saturday October 25, 2008. About 75 people showed up for this special moment. The day was used to shape some more jumps, ride the kids track, and also the first jumps were made on the other sections. It had rained much the day before so things were still on the soft side. The take offs and landings needed to be packed and the best way was to just ride them and pack them some more. The place has a lot of potential. Now that there is a fence surrounding the spot your time digging will pay off. There are endless line possibilities and once the place sees some sunny days and dries up, it will be jamming. Spectators have the best overview looking in from the cycling bridge and kids will stay busy on the kids track. Well worth a visit for sure for riders of all levels. Make sure you call Mike to make sure the place is open and keep your eyes open for opening hours which we will announce as soon as they are decided upon.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and see you soon for a session on the Helm Trails.
