Falkirk Junior Bike Club (FJBC) have donated £1000 to our fundraising campaign to build a traffic free, 1km, tarmac cycle circuit in the Central Belt.FJBC are the 6th Scottish cycling club to make a financial contribution to the fundraising campaign.
The community fundraising total now stands at £73,088, with a grand total of £520,088 raised so far.
Mark Drackford, chair of FJBC said “The West Lothian Cycle Circuit is a fantastic and exciting facility which will have a huge impact on local clubs and riders”.
“Providing a regular opportunity for our riders to develop their road cycling skills in a safe environment has long been an aspiration of the club, and therefore we are keen to demonstrate our support for the Circuit, through a donation of £1000.”
The cheque was presented to Linlithgow Community Development Trust (LCDT) board member, Chris Horne by Mark at West Lothian Clarion Cycling Club’s Santa Cyclo Cross.
Riders from Falkirk and the Clarion joined together for a fun event at Linlithgow Xcite where the cycle circuit will be built.
Fraser Falconer, chair of LCDT said “We are delighted and grateful for the donation from Falkirk Junior Bike club. We believe that the Cycle Circuit in Linlithgow will be a facility for all of the Forth Valley area and the support is very encouraging.”
LCDT who are leading the project to deliver the circuit are keen to hear from other Scottish cycling club’s who would like to find out how they can help support the campaign for this much needed facility.
