If you know someone keen to jump on a bike and try their hand at BMX then save the date for September 7.

Castle Hill BMX Club is hosting a Ride IN2BMX – Come and Try session at Fred Caterson Reserve, Castle Hill from 1pm to 3pm with the support of BMX Australia.

Trainers will run children through a beginner’s training session to provide them with the basic skills needed to ride around the Fred Caterson BMX track.

Castle Hill BMX Club President Aaron Mangan said it will be a great opportunity to learn more about the fast growing Olympic sport.

“When you come to the Castle Hill BMX Club’s Come and Try event, you will be introduced to one of the most exciting and fastest growing Olympic sports in the world,” Mr Mangan said.

“You will spend time with our coaches and other riders learning how to ride a BMX properly, learning how to manoeuvre, and most importantly, you learn to ride out of the start gate and down the start hill once the lights come in.

“The pure joy of riding over the jumps, cornering in the berms and racing to the finish line is something every person should experience.

“Our amazing coaches and riders will ensure you have a safe and fun time and ensure that you ride for your ability while learning new and exciting things.

“See you there,” he added.

Children need to be over the age of three. The club does have a limited amount of bikes and equipment to borrow on the day but ideally people should bring their own bike and helmet. All riders must wear long pants, long-sleeved top and closed in shoes.
