Recycling Lives create an obstacle

Recycling Lives donated a scrap car to be used as part of bike trial demonstration at Cuerden Valley Park’s sixth annual fair.

The Bamber Bridge fair included all sorts of entertainment including army paintball courses, live music, hog roasts, huge marquees of farmer’s market delicacies, climbing walls, traditional fair rides, woodland crafts, charcoal burning and, new to this year, mountain bike trial demonstrations.

Cuerden Valley Park Ranger Joe Brindle introduced the demonstrations in a bid to make the event even more spectacular and Recycling Lives was only more than happy to make an obstacle donation.

He said: “The bike trials proved a great success, pulling large crowds all day.

“We had riders from all over the country, and from all ability levels, travel to ride the course designed and hand built by me.

“The car donated by Recycling lives was a very tricky obstacle tackled by only our more experienced riders as it was very slippy and awkwardly shaped. But many of our good riders impressively had a go, with some even conquering it with no problem.”
