BMX FUNdamentals Session 2

bmx fundamentals session 2 ormeau bmx track belfast city bmx club
Last night we had our second night of our BMX FUNdamentals coaching sessions. There had been lots of rain on the Ormeau Bmx track during the week and club members had swept the worst of the puddles the day before, The weather was again forecast to be terrible but we missed the rain completely by only a few minutes. The grey skies might have put a few people off but all those who turned up had a great time. Picture here
(Sorry the pictures are not our usual quality, low light , fast moving bikes , and a 6yr old photographer lol.😀) Next Wednesday PLEASE NOTE WE ARE BACK AT ORMEAU PARK. A CHANGE FROM THE PLANNED VENUE . All are welcome.....see you 6:45 !
