Barnetts Demense Dig Day

Thanks to volunteers from our club and mountainbikeNI who joined Belfast City council workers on a Saturday in November to help repair and resurface sections of the Barnetts Demesne jump park near Mary Peters Track in Belfast. This venue gets a lot of wear and tear due to the nature of the track being on a slope with high amount of traffic from mountainbike tyres and a of course a wet summer, So our expert James was on site to lend a hand.

Buy a BMX for Christmas

Just a re-post of this very popular post from last Christmas. just in time to help you get the right bike for Christmas.

We at Belfast City BMX club want to promote the sport of BMX racing within Northern Ireland, but understand that it’s new to most kids and parents alike, and therefore can be confusing how to get involved.

Getting the right bike is critical, as there are many different BMX bikes, for street/ park, dirt jumping, flatland and BMX racing.

Although similar in appearance race bikes generally have aluminium frames for lightness, thinner tyres & a single rear “V” type brake & also do not have stunt pegs or gyros. The geometry of the frames is also different as they are built for speed rather than doing tricks.

BMX bikes are not “a one size fits all” bike & it is important to choose the correct size and type of bike. All too often we see youngsters on bikes that are too big or small & this can cause poor bike control.
