BMX bikes were a craze which started back in the 1980's and slow declined in popularity until around 2006 when it fully regained its popularity, with bikers performing tricks and stunt moves with their bikes either freestyle or using ramps.

Popularity
BMX biking is a sport in itself and has grown majorly in popularity, from young children to young adults, we now find BMX ramps and tracks appearing in play-parks and with youth organisations, competitions are carried out in the UK and outside UK.

Location
At play-parks, youth centers, some specialised sports facilities where training can be given to learn moves and tricks, basically if you have a BMX you can practice anywhere even making your own ramps, tracks and jumps at home if you have the space.

Age
Young children to young adults usually partake in this interest, if you can ride two wheels and want to learn that is when you can begin. Young adults usually into their 20's but the age can exceed this if you are agile enough and have an interest.

Ability
An agile body, the desire to learn, good concentration and of course owning a BMX is all the ability you need.

Description
BMX biking is performed on specially designed bikes, these usually have 20 wheels which are smaller than most conventional bikes such as mountain bikes, they have pegs on the front and rear forks protruding out from the side of the wheel, Giro handlebars (360 turn enabling the biker to perform tricks. Popularity has grown so much that competitions are now being held in Europe and not just the USA. Bikers can race or perform stunts and tricks on ramps or other objects on the streets.

Dedication
100% dedication is needed with this sport as although the professionals make it look so easy it requires skill and concentration to learn moves, tricks and stunts.
