There is an awesome skatepark jam going on for Victoria Skatepark in Bath called 'The Queen Is Dead' from 12pm tomorrow. It's been arranged because very soon work will start on the skatepark to remove it and put a new concrete park in its position. While this might be good for the younger users many of us older guys will remember the 20 plus years of BMX history and heritage that's gone on there...The Vert Ramp is probably the last one in existence in the SouthWest for example!
Get your final rides in this weekend, while being involved in this totally free event. Show your support and also check out what the new layout will be like....
Here is the information from the people setting this up:
"With Bath Victoria Skatepark soon to be demolished to make way to an awesome new concrete facility, we want to give those glorious metal curves the send off they deserve.
They'll be a few comps and dome small prizes to give out:
- high hop
- vert ramp highest air
- grind block best trick
- midi ramp best trick/run
Some of the guys from CrucialBMX Shop in Bristol will also be involved and riding.
Will be building a little ledge and kicker to spice things up, but limited by what will fit in my car. If anyone has any portable rails or ramps etc, feel free to bring them down.
Should be a good time, be there or be square!
