From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Gearless and Fearless

In 1984 a new craze hit Wester Hailes: BMX biking!  The Sentinel reported on the rise of the BMX in August 1984 when an open competition had been held at the WHEC.  There was also talk of building a BMX track for the area where bikers could practice their stunts away from the footpaths and traffic.  The Sentinel photographed a group of keen BMX bikers in Wester Hailes Drive.
