Superb new “Mini Roads” scheme launched!

An underused concrete amphitheatre has been transformed into Liverpool’s first purpose-built children’s learn-to-ride facility!

A group of young children launched the “Mini-Roads” scheme on Wednesday, in Everton Park, taking the first laps of a new cycle track, designed to imitate a realistic road lay out, with junctions and crossings.

The £380,000 scheme, funded by both Liverpool City Council and British Cycling, is a half a kilometre long facility which aims to attract and encourage thousands of youngsters to get cycling.

The new facility will focus primarily on children aged 2 – 7, and will be publicly accessible, including for those with adaptive cycles.

The photographs show the work carried out by our Workshops team on this project, who installed all of the bollards and bins on the popular new Mini Roads site! What a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful project.
