My child is under 5 years old and cannot ride a bike yet, is there a toddler track?

Yes. We have a mini track and a main track. Balance Bikes do not have pedals and are a great way to learn how to ride. There are absolutely no bikes with training wheels allowed.  We have balance bikes that are free to borrow.  We even have Balance Bike RACING for children ages 6 and under, on Friday nights. They race the final straight on the main track. Children on Balance Bikes must also have an annual membership $30, wear a full face helmet and wear long sleeves and long pants. Membership available for purchase at the track or by going to  www.usabmx.com

Can I rent a bike?

Yes! We have a rental bike fleet that is sanitized before and after each use, $20 per day, payment upon arrival. The rental bikes are free to use while attending the Monday and Saturday NOVICE training class or our ONE DAY FREE. However, we highly recommend purchasing your helmet ASAP. Please inquire at track or with a coach about the correct size bike and equipment needed to purchase. Knowing your correct size helmet and bike frame size is a very important part of every athletes entry into this sport.

What is required to wear for riding?

Helmet (full face required), LONG SLEEVE SHIRT, LONG PANTS, closed toe SHOES for all riders including balance bikes. (All other Protective gear recommended but not mandatory)

Can I ride my own bike?

Yes! Make sure to remove kick stands, pegs and reflectors PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. All bikes must have an operational brake and be safety approved by Okeeheelee BMX prior to track use. MTB are acceptable to ride on the track too. Absolutely NO training wheels allowed. If the athlete does not know how to ride a bike without training wheels then free use of a balance bike is the best solution until they are ready to hit the pedal bikes
