WHAT IS BALANCE BIKE RACING ALL ABOUT?
Bring your child ages 1-5 years old to try BMX!
If your child can walk they can ride on 2 wheels!!
Balance bike racing allows kids to come together, share their passion for balance bikes, and participate in some friendly competition. Most importantly they will safely play hard, probably get dirty, and have a lot of fun. Every kid participating in a balance bike race event will receive an award.
PRACTICE AND RACE TIMES:
The balance bike track is open for practice from 5:30-8:30 PM on Tuesdays. Balance bikes get 10'ish minutes/a couple of laps on the big track every 30 minutes starting at 6:00 PM.
The balance bike is open for practice from 5:30-7:30 PM on Fridays. They move to the big track at 7:30 and get 10 minutes there before races start.
October-November we add Sundays. The balance bike is open for practice from 11:30AM-1:30 PM on Sundays. They move to the big track at 1:30 and get 10 minutes there before races start.
HOW DO BALANCE BIKE RACES WORK?
We run balance bike races at all of our BMX race events. On race night they get 10 minutes of practice time on the big track before the race starts. They are the first race of the night. Each balance bike race is 2 rounds and starts on the starting hill. First-round is 1/2 track, the second round is the full track.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A Balance Bike membership costs $40 for the year (this is a membership through USA BMX which allows you to participate at any USA BMX sanctioned event across the nation and also provides secondary medical insurance for your little rider).
Blue Springs BMX does not charge balance bike riders to practice or race.
**Even though we do not charge, riders must be registered for every practice and race that they are on the track in accordance with USABMX sanction rules**
One Day Trial Memberships are available for FREE. The form can be completed before coming to the track at usabmx.com/trial then proceed to the Sign Up window when you arrive and let us know you did the online 1-day Membership.
WHY IS A BALANCE BIKE BETTER THAN TRAINING WHEELS?
Balance bikes are the easiest and best way to teach youngsters how to ride a bike. The balance bike is simple, its no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. The unique design teaches young children to balance on 2 wheels right from the start.
