For anyone who has ever wanted to try BMX racing

Calgary BMX will have an open track with complimentary coaching for BMX Day in Alberta. We will have our bike shed open with free loaner bikes and helmets. You can:

  • Try riding a BMX race bicycle
  • Cycle on a track full of fun and challenging features*
  • Meet our coaches who will be stationed around the track to guide you
  • Grab a hot dog and refreshments from our concession

Come out to try this exciting sport and have a rad day in the sun riding bikes!

Visit Alberta Bicycle Association at BMX Day in Alberta.

*Note that our track is outdoors and can only be ridden in dry conditions.

How to participate

Upon arrival, please go to our sign-up table. There you will be given a start time and asked to sign a waiver.  Proceed to the bike shed if you are borrowing a bike and safety gear.  Join your group by the bleachers when it’s time to ride.  Listen to a safety talk, warm up and then head out onto the track with your coach and some experienced racers. Each session lasts about 40 minutes. After your session, immediately return equipment to the shed for the next rider.  

Requirements

  • This free one-day event is open to anyone age 4* and up who can ride a pedal bike.
    *Age is determined as of December 31st, 2017. This means if your child turns 4 within this year, they can ride.
  • Riders must wear long sleeved shirts and long pants to participate. We also recommend decent shoes and some basic gloves.
