Held by CRUNCH Youth Club in conjunction with the Ramsey Million Partnership, 20 children turned out for the sessions where they learnt how to work, maintain and even perfect skills on a motorbike.

Split into several sections, the track had something for everyone; from beginners learning the basics to advanced riders trying out jumps.

Harry Nunley, 13, one of the riders, said: “I’ve learnt everything about bikes and it’s just so much fun. It’s taken me two days to get to where I am.

“I’m probably going to keep coming back here as it’s such good fun.”

Children could also have a go on quad bikes, and the session cost just £5 for four hours.

Mick Oliver, youth and community worker, said: “They’re a great bunch of youngsters. It’s been brilliant.”
