Where are we going today?
Circle City BMX Racing is the ultimate activity where the experts can push themselves to the limit, and beginners can feel like they are an expert.
You get your bike ready - hands on the handle bars - ready to take that leap. You are waiting in the starting lane, and you know you are about to experience something adrenaline pumping...something great!
You look out at the track at what you're about to face, and then you're off! The race has started!
The great thing about BMX is while every course has a finish line and a starting gate, no two tracks are identical, so you can always mix it up and try new things. Once you have mastered one course, you can move on to the next. The lengths vary just as much as the size, and the arrangement of the challenging obstacles along it.
Some tracks are flat, and some have very cool downhill sections for you to tackle! They also range from 900 feet to 1,300 feet in length. Don't worry about having a rough ride either, as the tracks have been well groomed!
So two year olds, you can take your time on the Strider pushbikes and really learn your balance - getting the feel for the bike and the tracks and building confidence. Experts, you can fly over the obstacles until your adrenaline pumped heart's content! Everyone will feel the same sense of excitement.
Each race participant is matched up with entrants similar to them, for example they might have a 5 and Under (Novice) category, and a 7 years expert category. They will make sure you are okay. After you win 10 aces, you move up a category! So it's a great personal challenge too.
You can also attend practice sessions prior to the race too, to really get to know the track.
Good luck out there!
