Bolehills is the only BMX track of it’s size in Sheffield and surrounding area. It was built in 1983 and has created a long legacy as the best BMX track in Sheffield ever since.

Maintained exclusively by volunteers, the layout has been largely the same since 2010. We’re looking to dramatically change this to offer a high quality track the Outdoor City deserves.

 

We are looking to secure funding towards Phase 1 & 2 improvements to the track to offer better:

Accessibility

Safety

Flow of trail

Maintenance

 

Bike Track, a BMX track building company have quoted against improvements. This will be supported with Volunteer efforts

We are looking to secure funding for:

~ £5000 for Phase 1

An additional ~ £25,000 for Phase 2

TOTAL ~ £30,000

The more funds we have the more changes can be made outside of volunteer efforts.

Work is hoping to be scheduled for early 2019


 

The improvements look to address the following issues:

Safety : Potential for collisions due to track crossing near start hill.

Flow : 1st straight runs uphill – hard for all user groups (especially younger users) to make it along; they end up riding other straights backwards causing potential hazards.

Safety : Pumptrack not solely for the use of smaller children

Safety : Pumptrack accessed by crossing main track paths

Maintenance :  Maintenance of current surfaced berms is time and financially consuming, leaving them in a poor state currently.


Phase 1 – Estimated £5000

  • New Kids Pumptrack
  • Start Hill move to avoid collisions & easier racing
    • This makes it easier for races to run, and generate income for the track.
    • This will provide a yearly income stream with enough profit to pay for yearly maintenance
  • Redesign for better flow for all riders
  • Ready to race

Phase 2 – estimated £25,000

  • Tarmac berms & tarmacked start hill
    • Reduces yearly maintenance budget requirement
    • Cements Bolehills as a nationwide track to visit in the Outdoor City
