Spot check!
« 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!

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!
