The £500,000 Welsh Assembly grant awarded last week to the Marsh Tracks project at Rhyl in North Wales means that the first phase of the cycle circuit - the road circuit - can be completed by this July!

This sum completes the £1 million match funding package and  will enable the disused  landfill site to be turned into the North Wales Cycling Centre of Excellence. It will be a multi-use cycling circuit comprising road circuit, BMX track, club house with cafe, plus changing facilities and meeting room.
