Students of Glenavon School have been enjoying their new bike track which opened in March. The creation of the track was a collaboration between the school and several generous community funders. MP Deborah Russell officiated at the opening and also was one of the first to try out the track, along with the Glenavon pupils.
The bike track weaves and carves around the school field and includes a pump track, a mountain bike track through the trees and some fun skills bridges. It is open to the public before and after school and the school’s sports co-coordinator will be running after-school sessions throughout the summer months. Check out the school’s Facebook page for more details.
The track is a wonderful community asset and the school wishes to thank NZTA, The Whau local Board, The Community Trusts Foundation, Four Winds Foundation, The Lion Foundation and Bikes in Schools for their financial support.
