Balance Bike (annual) $40 (2023) - Balance Bike is an open, non-pointed class formed with riders under age 5 riding push bicycles without pedals. This class will form with 2 or more riders. On occasion, if the need arises, Balance Bike may be offered to riders over the age of 5 with a IEP or disability.
A BALANCE BIKE MEMBERSHIP is REQUIRED and with that we offer FREE BALANCE BIKE RACING during our regular racing events. Balance Bikers do not earn "points" and we do not award trophies
. If your rider can’t ride the track by themselves then you must accompany / escort the rider around the track.
Wednesday Gate Practice: Balance Bikers practice with all other AGES & Proficencies Cost is $5 Participents can register via the online signup link or during the schedualed registration times.
Race Nights: PLEASE SEE OUR SCHEDULE for DATES & TIMES Participents can register via the online signup link or during the schedualed registration times. Balance Bikes will have 10 minutes ofpractice after regular pedal bike practice on race nights.
Strider / Balance bike riders who are making the transition to a pedal bike can practice / race with the striders until they are ready to move to the Novice class. A new pedal bike rider is generally ready for the Novice class when they can make their way around the track from the gate to the finish line and can navigate all obstacles on their own without having to dismount their bicycle and push it up a jump. Once a young rider is in the Novice class, a parent can only assist the rider on the gate, not on the track. When that time comes and your rider is ready for the next step, you will need to purchase a full USABMX membership, which is convertible from the Balance Bike membership.
