BMX stands for bicycle motorcross, and riders pedal around an undulating dirt track which is approx 400m long. It is a very social family sport, where you make friends quickly. With mums, dads and children of all ages on the track from 3years to 60 plus.
On club nights everyone is mixed in races according to age and ability: making racing fun, challenging and of course great exercise.
Club nights are held every Wednesday night during daylight savings hours at the BMX track, with check in between 5:00pm & 5:45pm, and racing underway 6.00pm. Full safety gear is required to be on the track, and we can assist with the requirements. Pre-season Sunday afternoon practise racing usually starts Mid August weather depending.
Our School Challenge is held annually in November with an open invitation to all Primary, Intermediate and High Schools in the area. Last year approx 120 children from 12 schools competed for the covenant top 4 schools Trophies.
Events / Tournaments:
We run coaching/training sessions for the younger and new riders on Monday evenings through the season and coaching sessions for the established competitive riders as well.
We also host Inter club meets – where club riders from all BMX Clubs in New Zealand are able to come to our track for a fun weekend of racing.
Occasionally we get to host National and North Island Championship meetings where the best riders in New Zealand come to compete for National and Island titles. These events are a great spectacle and very exciting to watch.
We have recently built a new UCI International Standard BMX track at the eastern end of Pohe Island. When the Club isn’t using it for events it is open for the public to use, but please take care and never ride alone. Always wear a helmet.
