There are 1 hour taster BMX sessions for over 7s with bike and helmet hire provided (but you must provide or hire your own gloves); this can be followed by a BMX skills sessions to consolidate your learning and improve on your execution. Once you know what you're doing you can simply access the Pay and ride sessions for some self supervising stylish fun.
