About Burlington BMX
Burlington BMX is a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-run bicycle motocross track located in Burlington, North Carolina, adjacent to the Burlington Sock Puppets ballpark.
Open to riders of all ages, BMX events are sprint bicycle races held on off-road, single-lap racetracks. (Riders pedal through the course, there are no motors in BMX.) This fast, action-packed sport is sanctioned under the American Bicycle Association (ABA). The BMX season runs from February through early December, weather permitting.
Burlington BMX’s main objective is to provide a fun, healthy environment that emphasizes good sportsmanship and personal growth through BMX cycling. Burlington BMX encourages bike riding for all individuals from the age of 2 and older.
