How To Stop BMX Tracks
If you are having problems with BMX tracks going through your yard or other area, then you should probably how to stop BMX tracks. While there is no sure fire way to completely get rid of tracks, there are a few things you can do to at least make sure they aren’t as bad.
What you will need:
- New BMX tires with slightly less grip and designed for recreational riding
- A wet cloth
Ramps for BMX biking
- The first thing you want to do is replace the tires of your BMX bike with tires that are designed for recreational riding. These tires will have slightly less tread and slightly less grip so they won’t tear up the area where the BMX bikes will be most present, and tracks won’t be as much a problem. Make sure before doing this that any tires you buy are still BMX tires; don’t try to put tires designed for other vehicles on the bike. Doing so would definitely up the risk of injury. To change the tires, simply unscrew the bolts on the old tires and screw on the new set.
- Next, clean the new tires thoroughly. Having all kinds of dirt and grime on the bikes will make tracks that are created much nastier and harder to deal with. This debris also makes the BMX tires work hard so they will be pushing down on the ground more, greatly increasing the grip and therefore, the tracks.
- Now, you will want to put up the ramps in the BMX riding area. These will prevent there being so much BMX biking in one spot, and while it may not help greatly, it will still reduce the tracks created by getting those riders airborne!
- If you have a wide area, ride in different spots. If you are going down a single trail, you will almost definitely create tracks with the BMX bike because you will be pushing on that portion of the ground constantly, and not give it any chance to grow back any grass, making the tracks even more difficult to get rid of!
