With over 30 years of Club history Royston Rockets BMX Club is going from strength to strength with many riders progressing to Regional and National Level and to the British Championships.
The current committee has steadily built the club and the dedicated coaching team have been improving the riding skills of all who ride with us. The aim is for riders to ride at a competitive level, but also to retain fitness levels and have fun! The membership has steadily grown to over 100 riders, and the club extends a warm welcome to people of all ages and abilities – we have members from four to 65 years of age.
Ever wanted to try BMX racing?
We are offering a taster session on Saturday 14th July, 2018 at 1pm – a small number of loan bikes and helmets are available and our coaches will be on hand to assist and guide you through the first stages. The club members will join us for their Saturday track session from 2pm.
This session is free of charge and gives you the opportunity to try riding, possibly for the first time. We will have tea and coffee available for Mums and Dads too!
In terms of training – we train on Tuesday evenings from around 6pm and Saturday afternoons from 2pm. Club Coaching happens every other Tuesday and on the last Saturday of every month. Members are split by experience / age level– dependant on level of riding ability and it is a great opportunity to work on techniques and racing styles.
We focus on being a family orientated club with many whole families taking part in racing. Recently a double Olympic rider came to Royston and trained with our youngsters which was motivational for them and let them see what is possible. We are looking to increase our membership and we always welcome support from non-members in roles such as assisting in the kitchen at events or marshalling / line judges.
We have recently received planning permission for a sprint track following some fund raising and there will also be some further development at the track in the next few weeks.
