Getting Started

Our quick start guide and FAQ page will help you get started. Club members are always happy to share their knowledge, so don't hesitate to ask questions.

Grab Your Bike

You don't need a fancy bike to ride our track. Whether it's a mountain bike or freestyle BMX, you can join in. Your bike must have rear brakes (disc or v-brake), and be in good working order. Remove any pegs, stands, or loose items for safety.

Don't Forget Safety Gear

Ensure your safety with the right gear:

  • Full-face helmet
  • Full-fingered gloves
  • Long-sleeved shirt & pants
  • Shoes, Jeans and a long-sleeved top are fine for beginners. For more advanced racing, specific racewear and pads (elbow and knee) are recommended.

Head to the Track

Our track is open on club nights and open days for new riders. Ride it as much as you can to improve your skills. Start slowly, learn the track, and build up speed as your confidence grows.

We run open days and training sessions from September through April for all ages. Come down, hire bikes and safety gear, and give BMX a go!
