The track is accessible all other days of the week for you to roll around and practice, however the gate is only in operation while committee members or coaches are on site.

What type of events can I enter?

Gates – Practice sessions where you can practice different skills around the track at your own pace.

What should I wear?

Protection is the name of the game! To ride BMX, you need to have your body covered. This means:-

  • Long Sleeve Shirt
  • Long Pants
  • Covered Footwear
  • Gloves
  • Full Face Helmet

New riders can get away with a good tracksuit or pair of jeans while they are learning, but BMX/Motor cross gear will be great to wear in the long run.​

Where can I buy race gear?

You can buy race gear from bike shops, motor bike shops, or on line. Keep an eye out for facebook sites like BMX GEAR FOR SALE where you can pick up some bargains as people sell their second hand equipment, bikes and accessories.
