BMX Safety in the Park and on the Trails

BMX is a unique form of cycling that is often categorized as an extreme sport. It originated in the late 1960s, during the peak of motocross's popularity, in Southern California. Although the sport has existed for more than half a century, it took until 2008 for it to make its Olympic debut, at the Games held in Beijing, China.

Although BMX was originally created with the intent to serve as a different form of off-road motorcycling due to youth imitating motocross styles of riding and racing on bicycles, BMX bikes now have a variety of uses. In fact, there are five BMX disciplines in total: park, dirt, flatland, race, and street. And today, there are even variations to the sport of BMX, including freestyle and dirt-jump BMX.
