West Kirby Today

Thurstaston Hill is being damaged by mountain bikers who have taken to building their own courses at the protected beauty spot.

In a bid to tackle the issue, Wirral Council is pledging to come up with alternative sites that enthusiasts can use instead.

Comment on Facebook Thurstaston Hill is ...

There have been jumps and burms being built there for years. Hats off to the new young builders looks fantastic

Looks sick!! 🤟🏼

Keith Jones it’s your fault grow up by a nice Honda Civic with your band of Merry men 😂😂😂

Enterprising farmer opportunity.

Like it or lump it. The bike trails have been fashioned into the natural contour of the land and use rocks and roots for jumps. They can never truly be destroyed. The council causes more damage by destroying the land with heavy machinery, polluting the air with diesel fumes and felling trees to lay traps for riders. These will never, ever truly go away and people have ridden here for decades and will continue to do so.

We have an excellent mountain bike track in one of our ancient woodlands here (isle of Wight) that the kids largely maintain and works really well. Hope you get a good solution

The rain will wash it away, it's not destroying anything. Focus more on the dog walkers leaving all the dog poo around the place making it annoying for bikers and walkers!

Definitely need a dedicated site, currently very dangerous at times on Thurstaston Hill. It would cost peanuts compared to what we spent on roads. Could be a good one for #churchfarm with council support.

The fact the council have said they’re going to work with the youths to help find a suitable site is pretty impressive. It’s nice to see this approach. They’re just kids looking to have fun on their bikes after all.

Kids and “big kids” definitely need a proper off road area to ride locally. This would then stop/reduce them using both Thurstaston and Caldy Hill...

I fear that 'pledging' to come up with an alternative site is more about moving the bikers on. I don't like to see the hill damaged however this area has been used by mountain bikers etc for many years and provides a necessary outlet for youths. Alternative sites at Delamere, Llandegla and Farmer Johns, youths can't travel to, particularly during lock down. The cycle paths of wirral are not suitable for mountain biking. Many 'pledges' have been made by the council! This included the fabulous looking 'Bidston Moss Newlands Project' that again never happened, despite it being planned and costed. www.newlandsproject.co.uk/.../Bidston%20Moss...

Once again a thoughtless and selfish group of kids are spoiling the environment of the majority. The Graham Blair proposal is spot on.

This is awful

Thanks for the heads up 😍

Nearly every Forrest has some kind of bike trail it's just that in caldy and thurstason some people there love to complain about absolutely everything

Why doesn’t the council build the kids a dirtbike area to ride their bikes. There is not much for them to do around there.

Provide somewhere better and watch what happens. Build it and they will come. Clearly there's a need not being met.

Personally I commend them for their hard manual labour, send em my way I'm in need of a landscaper.

Guess you all forgot what it’s like to be kids 🤣🤣

Tried to get the council to build a bmx/ skateboard park in West Kirby years ago. Not allowed. Where are they supposed to go and what would you like them to do? I think it’s great that the council are actually trying to work with them to find a solution 🙏🏼

Yes, if they were parked in Aldi why weren't they in Dee lane car park for 2hrs, long enough to get there & back. Tide times are displayed at at Dee lane.

It's a good job everyone else on here is perfect and never gets owt wrong! 🙄

Even higher tide tomorrow around mid day 10.5+ Mtr

Well Done emergency services

They were parked in Aldi

Lisa Wilkinson

Joanne Kelly what were we saying xx

Need to start paying for these emergencies!! Minimum 100 pounds! Seriously!!

Err, if you have returned to the island, on what basis is there an emergency that warrants a 999 call and rescue by lifeboat? Surely they could/should just wait the tide changing?
