Push it crews – feel the burn. Rippling muscles; tense rivalry; fanatical training – where are you going to shoot them? Work up a sweat over our impressive sports locations.

Burgess Park BMX Track – On your bike!

The wavy lines and striking backdrop make this a great location for photo shoots and music videos.

Only a handful of bikers can jump the 70-metre pro straight here – can your shoot handle it? This extraordinary track is 350 metres with three, three-metre high berms. It’s one of the most challenging in the country. It’s brand new and looks incredible. There’s a car park nearby and also a charming children’s playground.

Take a look here for more information.
