Legacy funding goes to create new cycling facility

Plans for a brand new cycling place in Chessington have been encouraged by an injection of over £ 122000 from a national plan to improve all the local sports facilities. The planned road cycling track at Moor Lane has been allowed National Lottery funding to include £ 130000 secured from London Marathon Charitable Trust.

Open to older people, schools as well as other community groups, the circuit’s focus will be to serve increasing cycling engagement by disabled people who live in Kingston, who might have to go out of the borough to relish cycling.

The Chessington cycle circuit is among twenty three sports programs in London to serve from the newest round of Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund, a part of its Paralympic and Olympic and legacy program, whilst it also generates revenue from its link up with afl betting online.

Lead Member for Sport for Kingston Council Simon James told that they were really happy to have secured this investment to add to the £ 130000 from the London Marathon Charitable Trust. The cycle circuit will modify the community to cycle in a secure and safe environment with a concentration on engaging Kingston’s disabled people.

He added that they successfully hosted the 2012 London Olympic Cycle road races as well as time trials and Ride London cycling event this month and they would like to make sure that the cycling legacy is firmly embedded in borough for several years to come.

Subject to planning permission, the track would be made around the perimeter of the sports field next to Moor Lane Children and Young People’s Development Service.
