Royston BMX Club is growing! 

With over 30 years of Club history Royston Rockets BMX Club is going from strength to strength with many riders progressing to Regional and National Level and to the British Championships.
The current committee has steadily built the club and the dedicated coaching team have been improving the riding skills of all who ride with us. The aim is for riders to ride at a competitive level, but also to retain fitness levels with a massive emphasis on having have fun! The membership has steadily grown to over 100 riders, and the club extends a warm welcome to people of all ages and abilities – we have members from four to 65 years of age.

Ever wanted to try BMX racing?
We are offering three taster sessions this year with the first session taking place on Saturday 6th April, 2019 at 10.30am -12.30pm a small number of loan bikes and helmets are available and our coaches will be on hand to assist and guide you through the first stages. The club members will then join us for their last winter race from 12.30pm.

This session is free of charge and gives you the opportunity to try riding BMX bikes, possibly for the first time. We will have tea and coffee available for Mums and Dads too! To book a place or ask questions email

In terms of training – we train on every Tuesday evening from around 5.30pm and every Saturday afternoon from 2 – 4pm. Club Coaching happens every other Tuesday starting from the middle of April and on the last Saturday of every month. Members are split by experience level – dependent on the level of riding ability from beginners to national level we cater for everyone. Email to get booked on.

We focus on being a family orientated club with many whole families taking part in racing. This year we have double Olympic Gold Medal Champion Maris Strombergs returning to Royston on the 5th May to coach with our youngsters which is a massive motivational experience for all our regular club riders.
We are looking to increase our membership and we always welcome any support from non-members in roles such as assisting in the kitchen at events or marshalling / line judges.
We have recently finished our tarmac sprint strip so now we can work on the riders bike handling skills on the flat before they head off onto the track and having this strip means any rider boy or girl from ages 4 – 65 can practice standing up, stopping and making sure we are all comfortable before we hit up the track!
