Balance bikes are non-pointed classes and are a development class where parents can assist their rider around the track. A BALANCE BIKE MEMBERSHIP is REQUIRED and with that we offer FREE BALANCE BIKE RACING during our regular racing events. Balance Bikers do not earn "points" and we do not award trophies.However, we do pass out treats after the riders have completed their racing.
. If your rider can’t ride the track by themselves then you must accompany / escort the rider around the track.
Race Nights: Balance bike practice starts when regular practice ends and will run until the flag lap is run.
Strider / Balance bike riders who are making the transition to a pedal bike can practice / race with the striders until they are ready to move to the Novice class. A new pedal bike rider is generally ready for the Novice class when they can make their way around the track from the gate to the finish line and can navigate all obstacles on their own without having to dismount their bicycle and push it up a jump. Once a young rider is in the Novice class, a parent can only assist the rider on the gate, not on the track. When that time comes and your rider is ready for the next step, you will need to purchase a full USABMX membership, which is convertible from the Balance Bike membership.
