Also heard at one moint that RGU students where making designs for one but again not sure. So just wondering whether anyone has had similar thoughts or knows anything? Would be sick to get a decent one put in!

Pretty sure the Cults pump track plan is still moving forward...???

Ah right, just haven’t really heard anything about it. Do you know who is organising it all?

As far as I am aware it’s the Transition Extreme lot who are looking at building the Cults pump track. I haven’t heard much about it recently though.

As far as I know there is potentially plans for 2 pump tracks one at the old cults skatepark and one beside the old BMX track in tillydrone. Transition were involved in both but I think it is more of a looking for funding type thing not actually building it.

call me a fool, but i smell entry fee if transition's involved

I think they are more involved with a helping to find funding kind of way not a running or building it.

Got a set of 26" dual ply wetsceams in good condition free to anyone local. I'll never use them and feel bad binning them.

Hi
I’m looking for recommendations: to get a used 26” Dj bike. Nothing to fancy up to £400 as I’m novice, and best spots to start riding. Thanks in advance.

If you have some spare 26 inch parts it could be worth building up from a frame. An octane one void or zircus would be a good starting point, they're about £120 on CRC the now.
Otherwise second hand is the way to go.

The dirt jump scene is crap up here. There are some jumps up in BOD but most of them are flooded, there's lots of litter and broken glass and the chavs trash them every so often. No idea if anyone is still looking after them, I've not been in over a year.

Tarland is pretty fun on a wee bike, pump track is decent.

Transition Extreme is a really good park but you aren't allowed in with a disc brake. If you ride brakeless or have rim brakes you'll be fine though. Probably better to get a bmx up here if I'm honest.

I will prefer to get a second hand bike and save time on building it, at the end I don’t know if I will be riding it.

Is it apply to all disc brakes or just to hydraulic brakes?

I've been in Tarland a few times already. That’s why I want try a dirt bike.

It's the disc they don't like, doesn't matter if it's hydraulic or cable.

Aboyne has a maintained jump park. Good sized table tops for learning on.

Please take a few moment to fill out the survey below and share with friends and family.
