“We are currently in the process of re-tendering the bike shop located on the site and for the moment the shop is closed for sales and bike hire. The new tender is open to the existing bike shop operator, and we look forward to receiving applications in the near future.
“We are asking bidders to agree to help us actively promote the Olympic legacy. As the only Olympic standard mountain bike venue in the world we’re extremely proud of Hadleigh Park and the legacy it has left in Essex. We have nurtured this legacy over the past nine years by developing the park into a fantastic venue promoting cycling, positive physical activity and health and wellbeing.
“It is important we maintain the momentum we have generated by raising our aspirations and expectations for the park, and working with visitors to the park, key partners and businesses to keep the Olympic spirit and legacy alive and well in Essex.”
