Work has started to construct a new learn to ride arena at the Stadium site in Cannock.

The development of a £75,000 dedicated off-street riding facility will simulate the on-street safety issues without any real risk to those learning to ride.

The facility once complete will be available to everyone and local schools and community groups will be encouraged to use this provision to teach safe on-street riding.

Councillor John Preece, Portfolio Leader for Parks, Culture and Heritage said “This is the Council’s first cycling arena in the District and hopefully won’t be the last.  In 2022 the District hosted the Commonwealth Games Mountain Biking event.  The legacy lives on with the development of this facility, which gives residents increased opportunities to get involved with cycling.  We are delighted that this facility is welcomed by and supported by British Cycling.”

The works are set to be complete by Spring 2024.
