Regional BMX racing takes place on a growing number of purpose-built tracks across the country.

Regional BMX race tracks are usually constructed of compacted dirt and stone sub-bases with limestone or tarmac surfacing. They are normally 275 to 300 metres long and feature a starting ramp, berms and a variety of jumps and obstacles.Many active BMX clubs operating on regional standard BMX tracks offer riding and racing lessons for beginners with skills sessions for more advanced riders. There are often organised BMX race meetings held for the most experienced riders. You can enjoy club race meetings, regional BMX events, British Cycling's British BMX series racing and National BMX championships at regional BMX tracks throughout the year.
Slightly smaller than national centres, regional BMX race tracks are built to minimum requirements outlined by British Cycling (BC) regulations and to meet the 'regional' facility criteria of British Cycling. Regional BMX race tracks generally are around 300 metres in length and can accommodate up to eight competitive riders.
Regional BMX track design can vary but tracks will typically have a starting hill of two to three metres in height and the track will include jumps, obstacles and corners that test BMX rider skills to the full.
Starting gates are required for regional racetracks with tarmac start hills and berms very much the norm. Riders use regional tracks can develop their racing skills to a standard that will give them the confidence to compete on national racetracks.
Often built at outdoor public open spaces such as parks or playing fields, regional tracks have a more informal atmosphere than national or SX tracks and yet provide a demanding test of BMX biking skills.
