Taupō BMX Club welcomes prospective new members.
It can be a tad daunting when you first come along to the track to check out BMX - remember that we are here to help you out and get you riding!
Here's a few tips to help you out.
Our club nights during daylight savings are on Wednesday evenings with registration from 5.15pm. Club days over the winter months are held on Sunday afternoons from 12.15pm.
It's a good idea if it's your first time here, to get there as early as possible to have a chat with the ladies in the points hut, (that's what we cll the garage near the finish line) as they will be able to give you advice and hire you the gear and/or bike that you may need.
Getting there early will almost guarantee you a chance to get all the information you need. If you turn up later, there will more than likely be 10 or 20 people all wanting to register so you may miss out on valuable info!
