Every weekend you can choose between multiple jams, races and contests. It's insane the number of BMX events that are happening. Good to see people get off their ass to put on a good time for the fellow riders. Got something cooking? Send us your flyer and we'll post it up. Or better, submit your event to the FATBMX event calendar. That way it will show up on the only up to date BMX calendar on the web. Support the events, show up, help out. Make our sport better, be positive, have fun. Lending a hand is free. Smiles are 'gratis' too.
Pick your event(s) and enjoy being a BMX-er. Double check with the local organiser before you make the trip. Things tend to change. Submit your event today. Put it on the FATBMX event calendar. Put some effort in to promote your event other than making a Facebook invitation to invite your friends.
This is a BMX calender that people will be checking next week as well.
