Coal Hills BMX riders took to the track for some fun and competition under overcast skies on June 13.

If you and your family are looking for a fun way to spend a few hours together come out to Cumberland and the Coal Hills BMX track (right beside the park on main street). Visitors are always welcome and our volunteers will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the exciting sport of BMX racing.

Monday nights are gate practise and riders clinic under the tutelage of our older riders; anyone can participate. Racing takes place Thursday nights; once school goes back it runs Saturday mornings.

We offer a one free race membership for all new riders so they can see what its like to be on the track with other kids. Ages for BMXing is unlimited, from youngest rider age two to oldest in their 30s at our track.

It is truly a family sport. I have witnessed three generations out on the track: grandpa in his 70s with son and grandson racing. If you decide on a full membership it entitles you to race all over North America and on the Island in Victoria, Nanaimo, Qualicum Beach and Cumberland.

Riders accumulate local points all season and are rewarded at the end of the season awards banquet.

The track has been running now for 15 years and is open to the public 24/7 except on race day and practise night. More info is available on our web page www.coalhills.com or on Facebook at CoalHills BMX and also by phone 250-338-3892 Mike or 250-400-1816 Tony.
