Thanks for looking us up, we'd love to have you come out to the track and ride with us. The Rapid City BMX Association, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the sport of BMX racing in the scenic Black Hills. We are a sanctioned race organization through USA BMX.
We are managed and run by 100% volunteer effort. The Association is guided by a Board of Directors who helps set the business plan and financial operations of the organization. We have made a serious investment in upgrading our facility, building a separate Strider™ track, and providing an exciting family-oriented activity that teaches the value of hard work, dedication, and most of all, having fun.
We race on Wednesday and Sunday nights, Wednesday registration is 5:30pm to 6:30pm and Sunday registration is 5:00pm to 6:00pm with racing to follow directly. First time of racing is $1. With a current USABMX membership, the nightly races cost $8 per rider, per class, and $3 for Strider riders. Season runs mid-April thru September.
Kids can start racing BMX bikes from 2 on up; mom and dad are more than welcome to bring their bike too. Rapid City is the Home of Strider Bikes and we have a separate division and track for kids 2 to 5. We have 3 classes of riders; novice, intermediate, and expert. We try our best to group kids in as close of a class/age matrix as we can and have a race for everyone.
We have a member practice on Monday evenings at 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Afterwards, the track is open to the public to try it out. Anyone or any age can ride, we just require they have long sleeves, pants and a full-face helmet. We have helmets at the track for free to borrow. Bring a bike* they are used to riding, no need for a specialized equipment.
*Note: pegs and reflectors must be removed.
Come on out, watch or join in the fun. For more info, please call 605-891-0655.
