About us

FOUNDED IN 1985
A SPORT CREATED BY KIDS, FOR KIDS

HARARE BMX CLUB

Harare BMX Club was started in 1985 when the first track was built at OG’s sports grounds. To date the track has been rebuilt several times to meet international standards which has allowed a number of talented riders to compete and achieve amazing results at the annual World Championships. Accolades to date: 5 World Champions and more than 50 riders have made it through to the final for the Championships. As a small club, we are extremely proud of our achievements and aim to continue this legacy.

Our Vision for the future
When the land was sold in 2016, it brought much uncertainty and volatility to the Club but with the backing and encouragement of the new owner and renewed enthusiasm from the Committee and Members, we feel the time has come to drive this Club forward into a new era starting with our new track. We are overwhelmingly optimistic and excited about our new track and the potential it has for our whole community. We are not just a BMX race track but an off-road Bike Park. By having this new creative environment, we hope to grow this sport from grassroots level and to send the most talented riders to train and race in South Africa or overseas.

The aim is to spread the word about the huge benefits of two wheels.
This is BMX as social work, BMX as community development.




BMX

A BMX bike is extremely light in weight and has only one gear.  It’s meant to be ridden standing up.




MOUNTAIN BIKE

A Mountain Bike is what most people have at home.  This bike is great of off-road cycling and have a variety of gears.




STRIDER

Strider bikes are excellent for introducing young children to cycling.  They assist with their balance so it’s an easy transition to a pedal bike.

REBUILT!

After a period of uncertainty, the track was rebuilt at it’s current location. It was a mammoth undertaking but well worth it. Whilst the track is complete, there are still areas that are currently being developed.

Incredible donations by the pubic made this project possible.


GREAT FUN FOR YOUR KIDS

BMX racing is an extremely exciting sport that can offer you countless benefits. BMX biking is a high intensity cardio workout that requires lower body and core strength while also demanding excellent hand-eye coordination.
The great thing about BMXing is that it’s open to all age groups and abilities and you can’t really have lessons. The best way to learn is to turn up and practice while watching others ride. Race tracks are very challenging – especially when going full speed. It is no coincidence that a lot of the top mountain bike riders have a background in BMX racing. No other sport lays the foundation for bike handling skills and control as well as BMX racing.
The sport prides itself on its inclusiveness. If you are a new rider or a pro, everybody rides. Nobody sits on the bench. It is a sport which has no discrimination between boys, girls, mums and dads.
There is no need for specialist equipment. Anyone can walk in and hire a bike and helmet from us and start riding. And even if you can’t ride, we can teach you how. From the very first visit, everyone is welcome.
It’s an action sport that is not team-sport based but rather a family sport. The family is the team. With family and friends involved, there is a huge social benefit for participants. As an individual sport, you can push yourself as hard as you want and accomplish as much as you want. With the demands of school sport, this is a great alternative which gives you the freedom to achieve.
