BMX FUNDAMENTALS – 2019

Is your Kid interested in BMX Racing?

With funding from BMX Ulster, Lisburn BMX Club, Belfast City BMX Club and East Coast Raiders BMX Club Larne we are delighted to announce 4 weeks of coached BMX sessions.

These sessions are aimed at getting new kids (and adults) into the grassroots of cycling, primarily at novice riders; it starts with flat ground BMX basics and completes 4 weeks later on the racetrack in a “mock” race environment.

Everyone is welcome, girls, boys, men & women, all ages, and all skill levels… even balance bikes!

We will coach “BMX FUN”damentals. Your kids will learn flat ground skills, track skills, and have fun in doing it. At the end of the 4 weeks, we are confident that all participants will be ready to take part in a novice race environment. This will be beneficial to all levels, and will be great fun. Come and give it a go………….

Ideally, you will have your own bike (or balance bike), full-length clothing, gloves & Helmet. (BMX Bikes are preferable, but Mountain bikes can be used)

We can arrange some spare bikes, full face helmets, gloves etc.

Session 1 will not need a full face Helmet, but all sessions after will.

Drag the kids off their games consoles; get involved in something new, cool and exciting. They will not be disappointed, and they will get a great work out!

The coaching is FREE… all we ask is that you have (and show) a Cycling Ireland (CI) License or you take one at the first session.

We will assist you in joining CI on session 1, and advise you accordingly. (There will be no fee for riding on the track during the sessions- normally £5)

The costs for a CI license is: U8 & U10 licences are £9 – U12 & U14 categories the cost is £18

Last year’s BMX FUNdamentals was a great success !
