COME AND TRY BMX – SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST 2018
Bayside BMX Club is holding its Ride in 2 BMX Day on Sunday, August 19th.
Ride in 2 BMX Day is a BMX Australia initiative held across the country for newcomers to have a go at BMX under supervision by accredited coaches.
During the session, participants will be allowed on the track to try out different aspects of the track, bike riding techniques and the workings of the race gate, all under the guidance of coaches. All riders riding during the event will be covered under the BMXA insurance.
Ride in 2 BMX Day is free for riders of all ages (riders range from 3 to over 60). Loan bikes of different sizes are available from the club. Helmets and gloves are also available.
Riders will need to have long sleeve tops and long pants along with closed toe shoes to be able to participate. A suggestion is jeans or track pants provided all legs and arms are fully covered.
The Ride in 2 BMX Day differs from a typical club practice night as there will be
- Less riders on the track at any one time, allowing for new riders to establish their comfort zone without the worry of running into other riders.
- Closer contact with the coaches, giving the riders better feedback to tips and tricks to negotiate different parts of the track including the non riding aspects of the sport such as balancing the bike on the gate
- New riders of different levels trying out the track, participants will not feel intimidated by the faster riders
The event is also a great opportunity for non riding parents to get to know the sport from a different perspective. This includes the riders view on the race track, bike sizing or even how different BMX is compared to other sports (even other cycling disciplines).
