Wasteland transformed into cycle track
PUBLISHED: 16:00 07 June 2015
A PIECE of Weston wasteland has been transformed into a children’s cycle track.
The Whizzy Wheels track has been built by Alliance Homes on the Bournville estate, behind the shops in St Andrew’s Parade.
It will be available to children to encourage safe cycling, in conjunction with the police, schools and the cycling proficiency course Bikeability.
It was called Whizzy Wheels by schoolgirl Alyssa Cowell, who was given a bicycle for coming up with the winning name.
The opening event was attended by PCSOs who tagged bikes and offered cycling safety advice, as well as residents and schoolchildren.
The mural was designed by Boomsatsuma, Somerset Wood Recycling was commissioned to provide the wooden furniture and farmers Rob and Alistair House donated tractor tyres for use as planters.
