What age can kids start riding BMX?

The beauty of BMX is that you can start basically as early as physically possible, with there being formal racing categories starting in support of kids at the age of 5. It is not uncommon to see children between the ages of 3-5 at the pumptrack, skatepark or racetrack, assisted by parents as required. Generally, once your child can maintain their balance, they are encouraged to join their local race club, or head down to the pumptrack and slowly build their skills and confidence. Whether it be race or freestyle, BMX is a very inclusive sport with a family orientation, come and try for yourself.
