Rounds 7 and 8 of the 2018 HSBC UK | BMX National Series are being held on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June 2018 at the brand new Glasgow BMX Centre  Knightswood, Archerhill Road, Glasgow G13.

This will be the first major event to be hosted at the new Glasgow BMX Centre in Knightswood and volunteer marshals are required to ensure the safe running of the event – no experience necessary although the minimum age is 16yrs.

The event will see around 2000 people including competitors, spectators and event support arrive at the facility for two days of fast paced racing at this world class BMX facility.

The planning application for the proposed Knightswood BMX centre has been submitted to the Council for consideration. This follows on from two consultation events held over the past few months.

The proposed facility will see the creation of the first Olympic standard BMX track in Scotland consisting of 8m and 5m start ramps to accommodate all levels of riders. It is the only new venue being built ahead of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships and will complete the city’s portfolio of cycle sport venues as well as increasing the profile of cycling across the country. It’s construction means that young people will be able to learn all four cycling disciplines across the city –  mountain biking at Cathkin Braes, road and track at the Velodrome and BMX at Knightswood Park.

All the documents relating to the planning application can be viewed on the Council’s Online Planning Portal (ref no 17/00440/DC)
