ABOUT US

The LOGAN CITY BMX ACADEMY INC. was registered as a not for profit organization on 31st July, 2001 by a group of dedicated BMX enthusiasts.  This facility was a previous legendary track which was abandoned back in the 80’s. LCBMXA has been rebuilt from the ground up as a uniquely different approach to Bicycle Riding.  Our purposefully created facility is built for “bicycle skill development” that transfers into Recreation riding and competitive BMX racing.“We don’t believe in the learn yourself approach to BMX”

Why are we called a BMX Academy and not a BMX Club? the mission is to encourage children to have a go at bike riding, develop bike skills, have fun, make new friends, and be active.  LOGAN CITY BMX ACADEMY is able to offer world class programs through our coaches who facilitate programs for all ages, and all levels of bike skills for boys, girls, men and women. Together we help you participate in an amazing sport, by guiding you with experience for a safe and enjoyable journey.  LCBMXA is your pathway to stylish bike riding and is truly your best introduction to BMX riding.
