Speaking of London 2012, we couldn’t go without including the Olympic BMX track on our hit list.

The 390m floodlit track has been remodelled since the Games, so riders no longer have to clear each bump in order to reach the next one, creating a totally rollable course.

The seats have been taken out to create an easier track, so anyone from the age of seven upwards can come and give it a go – as well as catering to pro-level standards.
