Possible new circuit right on my doorstep!!!

Post by AlanGoodman » Tue Apr 05, 2016 9:49 pm

The local cycling club here in Hemel have just got permission to hold cycle events on Bovingdon airfield.

I was told this by a chap (Mark Crow) who turned up to the BHPC event at Hillingdon on Sunday. I contacted the club for details and got this reply:

Hi Alan, thanks for your message, yes we have just got permission to use the circuit for cycling and would be good to try and get some of your activities up there. We're just trying to work everything out and see what we can and can't do so lets speak as we go further into the Summer and we have more to go on. Mark is great, very supportive and his boy Josh is going well in the race team. Meet soon, Andy

That's the old Banger/Hot Rod racing circuit... Spent many happy hours up there when I was a yoooof...

They stopped it when they built houses nearby because of the noise. It did re-start for a while but hasn't happened for some years now.
