Title: Spot check!
Post by: nosubsteve on January 30, 2019, 12:09:45 PM

This has probably been done to death, but I'm (kinda, not really) new here, so I'll pretend I don't know how to use a search function.




I have about 10 assorted basketball courts in the local area, but this is the flat spot at my local indoor park - very nice surface, and the tranny makes for an interesting variation.

Let's see yours then!

That looks like alot of fun!! I dont have a spot atm. Currently in a new area and not had the weather to go spot hunting.
Been on google earth tho and scoped the area for tennis courts. Just need to check they arnt sh*t.

Do they charge you much to use that place? Or mates of yours?

You might find the park at Peacehaven empty enough in the mornings, I have no idea about undercover spots around Brighton way though... Hopefully there'll be a multi around for you somewhere.

I currently pay at the indoor, but I'm hoping to work out a deal so I can go after hours, I've been there every day this week as it's -2 out here!

There are no reliable undercover spots BTN. Big issue here, unless your willing to fork £10 an Hr for a Church hall like I had been using. Outdoors it is.

Shame, did you ever get to ride in Moulsecoomb leisure centre back in the day? Great spot, not too pricey if a few chip in.

Hopefully the scene will pick up again in Spring...

The Seafront is rideable, if you don't mind the slant!
