BMX is booming and there are lots of fantastic opportunities for young people to get involved in this exciting sport.
BMX involves fast starts, loads of jumps and banked turns called berms. In London, there are plans to have a BMX circuit in every London borough.
Go-Ride Coach for London, Nathaniel Martin, said: “We have more BMX clubs than ever before, meaning lots of children can try out the sport in a safe environment.”
Not only will you make new friends and learn cool new skills, but you could also win medals one day! Lots of riders on the Great Britain Cycling Team started at Go-Ride Clubs.
Nathaniel said: “I’ve seen riders at BMX clubs who could be European, World or Olympic champions. In the near future, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these riders joining the Great Britain Cycling Team.”
There are lots of opportunities across the country to get involved with BMX. If you want to give it a go, find your local Go-Ride BMX Club and get involved.
