Wickersley Parish Council recently upgraded the BMX cycle track on the Bob Mason Recreation Ground, Sorby Way, Wickersley which will be officially opened between 12:00 and 16:00 Friday 28 October 2016.

Many thanks to all who helped with or took part in the Rotherham Town Centre Cycle Event. Undoubtedly there were some things which could be improved for next time, but early feedback from competitors and council officials has been very positive. There is no doubt that people enjoyed themselves and we succeeded in our aim of raising the profile of cycling and the reputation of Rotherham Wheelers. We intend to debrief the event with our partners in the near future and would welcome feedback from competitors and officials. If you wish to provide feedback (positive or critical), please forward to me by email at your convenience. Once again, many thanks to all of you. Best Wishes Dave Buxton
