WE ARE BLACKPOOL BMX CLUB
GET IN TO BMX RACING
We are a BMX Club affiliated to British Cycling that was formed following the opening of the national standard BMX track in Stanley Park, Blackpool in the summer of 2011. We are here to promote the fun and exciting sport of BMX Racing which is suitable for anyone aged from 4 to over 40, male or female.
We aim to attract new riders from all over the area and involve the local community as well. The club has a number of bikes available, and the required safety equipment, which you can hire if you want to give it a try.
We have over 50 members which includes all levels from novices to talented riders who are regularly making podiums at National races. Our club is growing rapidly and you will always get a very warm welcome from us all, so come on down and have some fun.
