Langford planning 'Wheelhouse' cycling facility and cafeteria adjacent to Jordie Lunn Bike Park
Published February 3, 2021
The City of Langford is seeking grants for the construction of a two-storey clubhouse adjacent to the municipality’s Jordie Lunn Bike Park currently under construction.
Envisioned as a social gathering space with bicycle rental facilities, storage, a cafeteria, washrooms and a bike repair service, the complex (dubbed Wheelhouse) will be situated along the bike park’s Irwin Road frontage in the Westhills neighbourhood.
“The Jordie Lunn Bike Park is a one-of-a-kind recreational cycling space in the City of Langford that caters to cyclists of all ages and abilities,” reads a description from the City of Langford. “It combines elements of dirt jumping, a pump track, skills area, and cyclocross/[mountain bike] trails in one seamless platform. The park serves as a year-round public cycling space for recreation and high performance training. In addition, it offers exciting programming and sports development opportunities for schools, sports teams, and clubs.”
However, the track remains off-limits to the public pending the installation of signage and safety features. The official opening is expected to be held this spring.
Construction of the Wheelhouse is planned for completion in 2022.
In other sports-related news concerning the municipality, the City's stadium along Langford Parkway will be renamed Starlight Stadium
after nearly a decade of operations under the Westhills Stadium moniker. The stadium's naming rights will transition later this year. C
