The Merton BMX track, in London, is a modern twist on an original 80s track and was designed and built by Clark & Kent Contractors.

This is a U-shaped BMX track within a standard U-track layout and was constructed to incorporate a downhill first straight to increase further the track speed for BMX riders.

A Bensink gate was installed along with spectator fencing, a full floodlight system, officials' areas, a pens area for BMX bike riders and a storage container.

The Merton BMX track is the biggest to be found within the M25 circle, so the catchment area for BMX bike riders is massive, and the BMX track has so far proved a great success.

Built on behalf of Merton Council, build time was just nine weeks. It is just under 400 metres in length, and it is seen as a National Standard track in a regional-sized facility.

The Merton track has proved very popular in all respects, and Formula One driver Jenson Button chose it as the venue for a TV advertisement shot there in the summer of 2012.

The Merton BMX track is home to Merton Saints BMX Club which has been based there ever since August 2011when the club was formed.

The club holds youth and adult sessions with evening riding under the floodlights. Sessions are free of charge, but visitors need to register first, and they must be able to ride a BMX bike.

The club also offers taster sessions for those new to BMX racing with a two-hour introduction. Bikes, helmets and safety equipment can be provided.

Day Camps are held regularly with supervised BMX activities for children throughout a day but riders must be confident in BMX biking and have attended a taster course first.

The club holds BMX pay-and-play sessions which are supervised but not coached and again, a taster session is a prerequisite.

Community Talent Programme courses are offered to riders who show promise and are keen to start racing. These riders get some free coaching before their introduction to the Merton Saints BMX Club.

More details are available from the Merton Saints BMX Club and you can see a YouTube video of the Merton BMX track in use here.
