Hinterland BMX Track, Address Location & Club Events, Glenview QLD
The Hinterland BMX Track was conceptualized by a group of riders who found that there was an enthusiastic group in the community who could benefit from a track. Though it took almost 2 years to find the ideal location, they eventually found one and constructed it. Today, it’s one of the best in the Sunshine Coast, with state-of-the-art infrastructure and lighting. It was also the recipient of a community grant for more upgrades.
BMX riding has long been a popular sport among the community’s youth. The Sunshine Coast BMX Club was established in 1988 and they already have almost 100 members. They ride throughout the year and hold races during Wednesday evenings. Races are interesting to watch as there are 8 riders that compete on the track, and scores are given based on finishing positions. However, riders below the age of 8 are encouraged to enjoy the sport instead of participating in a competition.
There are also volunteer positions available if you’re interested to spend time learning about BMX and meeting new people around the Hinterland BMX Track. A maximum of 18 volunteers are needed to operate club races, while monthly rosters are done to distribute the load among all members. Parents also have a chance to watch their kids’ races.
For all your BMX biking needs in the area, the Hinterland BMX Track is the place to go!
