Gallery: Cycle Suffolk invite BMX and off-road riders to Kingston Field
ORGANISERS of a family cycling festival helped transform a Suffolk playing field into a two-wheeled terrain for riders of all ages and experience.
Kingston Field in Woodbridge hosted a day of events for all breeds of biker – from BMX fanatics to off-road riders.
The event was presented by Cycle Suffolk, which aims to develop a culture of cycling in the county by creating safe, sustainable and competitive opportunities including social rides, loan bikes and fun competitions.
Featured among the many attractions set up on the field were grass track riding, speedway riding and BMXing.
Members of the Woodbridge and District Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) were also on hand to offer cycle coding, safety and security advice, and hand out information leaflets to riders.
