We're spending some time on the road to bring you the latest in BMX. We have been doing this for many years. But years ago, you could not follow us doing this. Now you can, through facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pheed and all that Social Media shizzle. We run into some funny stuff on the road, meet interesting people and see amazing stunts. On and off the bike. What might not always be good to post on the FATBMX.com website, could be good enough for Facebook. Or an Instagram picture tells the story without adding many words. Follow us if you want, here are the links to our social media accounts so you don't have to search for it to hook it up.
How many times do you meet friends and say: "Let's ride together some day". 95% of the time it doesn't happen until you meet again somewhere else and the same question pops up. The solution to all this is to pick a date, get the dirt spot in shape and invite all your friends to come ride that day. Also all facebook friends are welcome, it's just an excuse to get together for a fun day of riding bikes. Yes, we've picked a date, made a flyer and we want you to come to the Flame trails at Sportpark Brandevoort in Helmond, NL on Sunday 17 April 2016. We'll make sure the spot is up and running for all BMX riders (racers and freestylers) and we'll have some tunes. You just come over and roll.
