Manchester BMX Flatland League Jam

Ardwick Sports Hall in Manchester played host to a BMX freestyle hang-out session on Saturday 2 July.

Flatland BMX is “a discipline of wild and creative balancing tricks”.

The jam league was organised by Alex Romain who had BMX’ers from all over the world – they started the BMX FreeStyle event to raise funds for charity in memory of friends and people whom they had lost through mental health illnesses and covid.

Co-organiser Keenan Phillps said: “It’s a chance for everyone who hasn’t seen each other in a while to practise tricks and socialise!”
