Programme Overview

Hamilton BMX Club & The Waikato Region BMX is excited to have a category of participation to children as young as 2 years old within the sport of BMX. Known as "BMX Striders or Mini Wheelers" participants will be able to ride what is commonly known as balance bikes/striders - bikes with no pedals.

BMX Striders ( Mini Wheelers) is an introductory level where riders develop balance, gross motor skills and independence to begin riding a bike. Riders will be able to develop skills that allows their progression in the sport to become seamless as they progress on to the more traditional BMX bike.

BMX Striders (Mini Wheelers) becomes the new entry point into the sport for riders too young or not competent in progressing to the Kiwi Rocket Sprocket programme.
