Construction work is underway on a new £3.7 million Olympic standard BMX track being built in Kinghtswood area of Glasgow ahead of the 2018 European Championships – an exciting new multi-sport event bringing together some of the continent’s leading sports.

The new BMX Centre at Knightswood Recreation Ground is the only permanent venue being constructed for use at Glasgow 2018 and will be Scotland’s only World and Olympic standard BMX track. Work is expected to be complete by late spring next year, after which the venue will host a number of test events in the lead up to Glasgow 2018.

Completion of Knightswood BMX Centre will mean Glasgow is the only city in the world with venues capable of hosting all four Olympic cycling discipline events (BMX, MTB, Road and Track) within its boundary. The others are the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome at the Emirates Arena (Track), Cathkin Braes Mountain Bike Trails (MTB) and the city’s streets (Road).
