A push is on for dedicated mountain bike and BMX tracks on the Peninsula. Julia McCarthy said she was moved to start a petition after witnessing an adult swearing at children who were creating dirt bike ramps at a park on Mountain View Rd in Mount Eliza.

“I was astonished anyone could feel this way as it has brought me such joy seeing the kids being kids at the parks – one of the silver linings of COVID,” Ms McCarthy wrote online. “Let’s support these kids to get some sanctioned areas or facilities they can use . . . this physical and creative activity is awesome, not harmful.”

More than 300 people have signed the petition, which argues that bike tracks enable kids to be physically active, build self-confidence and make friends.

The issue of unofficial bike tracks and potential environmental damage has flared on the Peninsula and in Frankston in the past. In 2017, Frankston City Council removed bike tracks and jumps built by children in bushland near Overport Park in Frankston South. Council officials said the tracks had been illegally constructed and were causing erosion, but irate parents and children said they provided a healthy outlet away from computer games and television.
