I know the perfect place for Barnstaple's BMX track
BMX bike riding is an Olympic sport, we were one of the top gold medal contenders in Beijing. We're good at it, it's healthy, good fun for teenagers and kids — and I've spotted the perfect opportunity to promote this sport in Barnstaple.
There's an ideal spot lying vacant — between the new bridge and the rugby fields.
I suggest NDC get a digger in there for a day and fashion a large racing track with hills. The result could be future Olympic champions, but at the very least, healthy happy kids. (We shouldn't forget that the excellent track that was there before, was sacrificed for the new bridge.)
The kids have already started building mini hills next to the Tarka Trail, and my son has disappeared off on his bike every day after school this week, returning happy and tired three hours later. They've done that themselves, but they deserve more.

If the council needs to justify the cost of a digger for the day, I can reassure them that there will be substantially reduced NHS costs in the future because the kids that use it will be far healthier and happier as a result.
