BMX season opener set for April 22
The 2021 Lincoln Park BMX season starts this Thursday, April 22, and runs through Nov. 14.
The track has seen a major rebuild for the 2021 season and the first corner has been repaved, president/track operator Sean Coleman said.
Riders from ages 2 to 75 ride at the track.
“(It’s) one of the few sports where the whole family can participate at the same time and no one sits on the bench,” Coleman said.
Balance bike riders race and practice for free with membership.
Track bikes and helmets are available at no charge, with limited supplies (about 50 bikes and 60 helmets) on hand.
