What do I need to ride on the track?
Protective equipment such as fitted long pants, long sleeved top fitted at the wrist, full face helmet that covers the ears, gloves with complete hand and finger protection and closed toe shoes are compulsory on the track.
Any 20inch or 24inch (cruiser) BMX bike will be good to go on the track. Remove any mudguards, chain guards, kick stands, pegs and reflectors for the safety of yourself and others. Ensure there are no sharp edges on your handlebars (ie.no torn grips with exposed metal or pedals etc). You also need a rear brake that works.
All BMX bikes must be safety checked by an official who will assist with any minor adjustments required before being allowed to ride on the track.
