bmx is thriving in northern ireland and the Republic of ireland too

Every club is affiliated to British Cycling, the governing body of the sport in the UK. This means sessions are insured and clubs have a recognised structure such as a committee. Club coaches gain qualifications through BC and there's special training for club Welfare Officers. All this should give newcomers peace of mind!

BMX clubs are grouped into regions: Scotland, North, Midlands, East, South and South West. Each region has its own committee that works with the clubs to set regional race dates.
