Smooth, all-weather tarmac (though the Yorkshire sun dance we did last year worked, this event will still go ahead if it rains) with lots of grass to picnic on. 

The track is one mile of super smooth tarmac. 

The RGG shop gang will have a stall open so you can buy skate goodies and the RGG coaching team will put on a few mini workshops around the track

Picnic

Please bring a picnic and use the grass in the centre of the loop as the main picnic area.

Help us keep the site tidy by taking your rubbish with you when you leave.

What happens if it rains?

Our event will very likely go ahead, even if it rains.  Experience has taught us that it tends to be showery... so do pack that waterproof!  The track is a high grade of tarmac and we are able to continue to skate unless it is hurricane conditions.

Should we have to cancel the event due to poor weather, we will refund you the cost of your tickets, but are unable to refund any further costs you may incur.

Parking

A car park is availble at the venue, however spaces are limited.  Please ride share, use public or human powered transport to get to the venue if possible.

If the car park is full please use the Lawnswood cemetery carpark nearby as an overflow car park and walk to Bodington from there - the address is  Lawnswood cemetery, Otley Rd, Adel, Leeds LS16 6AH
