Sheffield has a City Council that is happy to support the Industry, and we would like to stimulate the healthy trajectory.
Sheffield Rocks & Rolls: Thank you to Everyone making life a sweeter ride.
The Wheeled Sports have boomed and we could do more to maintain and support this trend.
Professional or rider designed flowparks, skateparks, pumptracks & trails can accommodate everyone from beginners, recreational, Progression to Pro.
Having easy access to suitable sports playgrounds is healthy, stimulates local economies, improves community integration and reduces antisocial behaviour and traffic congestion.
Recent Stat feedback indicated folk searching for their nearest Skatepark is increasing year on year by 104%. Sales of complete skateboards across the market is rising year on year by 31%. A popular UK bike chain retailer recently published their observations of bike sales through the pandemic: 89% increase in their cycle to work scheme. Sales rise in kids bikes sat at 45% and juniors at 67%.
More localised riding opportunities will support this trajectory, and increase riders capabilities on their equipment and lead to a healthier commuter based culture.
The Olympics and British Sports Funding have recently increased their investment into alternative wheeled sports, with our collaboration and a fresh take on life and business, we can contribute to developing our community space effectively.
Rider proficiency and achieving flow is magical. We know outdoor play and sports participation is a great tool for wellbeing & the alternative sports have long since integrated the marginalised. With improved community playgrounds we create a happier, healthier society.
Developing an equipment mobile library is a consideration, if the facilities meet merit.
Encouraging community integration through sport and play is achievable, and can be witnessed at volunteer lead initiatives across Sheffield.
