What to do next?
Decide when to come check it out, of course! New riders are welcome at our track on any of our scheduled days!
Tuesdays we practice only. It is a bit slower paced and will give a rider the most time to connect with our volunteers and spend time out on the track.
Thursdays (Summer) or Sundays (Spring/Fall) we race! These days are bit more fast paced and may be the best for spectating at first. You will definitely get a good taste of the race day vibes!
No matter what day you decide to come out, we look forward to meeting you! There are a few things you should do before you head to the track...
First, Find us on Facebook, "Like" our page and look for our most recent post about wether or not we will be open on our scheduled day. We update there before EVERY event, so make sure you check before coming to the track. The weather and other factors play a large role in our schedule.
Second, Make sure you're ready, You'll need:
- long pants, long sleeves & closed toed shoes
- a bike with NO pegs, NO chainguard and NO kickstand
- a full face helmet
- a Free 1-Day Trial Membership
We do have a few loaner bikes and
helmets if needed.
Once you LOVE it and want to keep coming you'll need to upgrade to a 60-day trial ($30) or Annual Membership ($65). USA BMX/BMX Canada offers several different membership types to meet the needs of the BMX public. All riders practicing or competing on a sanctioned track must obtain a membership prior to riding on the track.
