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.

RULES FOR COVID-19

We will soon be opening for club sessions again. Things will run differently to allow us to follow the guidance around COVID-19 from British Cycling. Sessions will be booked and paid for online, in advance and will be for Blackpool BMX club members only initially through the club shop on our website.
 
We are limited to 5 riders per coach and just 4 per gate so coaching session numbers will be limited according to how many coaches are available.
 
Gate practice will be limited to 20 riders, again in gates of 4. 20 is the most we can fit while maintaining distance in the pens.
 
We will not be providing any hire equipment or refreshments initially so riders will have to bring their own. Children under 16 will not be able to be left at the track unaccompanied for the sessions. The parent/guardian has to remain on site and are expected to be available to assist their child should they fall or crash. Club first aiders will be present but are asked not to assist unless the the parent is unable to manage (to avoid contact where possible).
 
All this is going to take some real teamwork and more volunteers than usual. If you are available to help, please do! This gives you an idea of how we will have to run for now.  We will review the situation as the guidance changes.

New Rider Session Currently Unavailable

Due to the technical aspect of BMX racing, it is advised to attend a new rider session held by the club at 8.40am each Saturday. A Blackpool BMX coach will assess the ability of the rider, providing advice and encouragement. This is an ideal session for new riders who initially need more attention and focus from our coaches.


Weʼre raising £5,000 to Help Blackpool BMX Club a local club run by volunteers, which was broken into and £5000 of equipment stolen. This is to try and help replace it. Any donation big or small would be gratefully received on our Just Funding Page >
