A cycle track on the south-eastern corner of the Recreation Ground which provides a safe environment for young riders to learn how to cycle and prepare for the roads while being free from the dangers of other vehicles.

The layout of the track is a stylised version of the town centre roads to give some authenticity to it, as are the road signs and names. The track also contains road markings, pedestrian crossings, a mini-roundabout and working traffic lights to make it as realistic as possible.

The area includes new tree planting, the provision of suitably cut tree trunks to form rustic/natural seating, longer swards of grass and wildflower planting.
