    Hidden!

    Hiidden away down a back road, unless you ride track you wouldnt know it was there, the track surrounds a local non league football pitch

    More football clubs should be like that

    Well it is

    You cant see it from the road, the ground is very small and the team have a small following

    You have to cycle down a backroad on an estate, then across the playing field on the cycle track and there it is, hidden in part by the stands and trees

    There are apparently loads of old ones in Glasgow. Mostly old cinder tracks that are overgrown and hidden behind factories and houses.

    What sort of condition is it in?

    Newcastle track is in A1 top condition. Resurfaced 2 years ago, it hosts a weekly track league in the summer and various training sessions throughout the week. The Olympic squad sometimes train there.

    I'm from Nottingham and managed to find it OK.
