The Kitchen BMX & Skatepark PRO/AM

Mark your Calendars for the 1st Annual BMX PRO/AM Contest at the Kitchen. Riders Apparel will we on hand to cover this epic 1st contest at Brett Banasiewicz new park!  We have made a few trips up to the park, and I recommend that if you are going to enter you had better gear up and get up there to get your practice on!  The park is amazingly fun and slightly intimidating for the novice types, but a super blast for all those who love them some BMX!  I for one am super stoked to see this kind of contest here in the Mid-West!  Heavy hitting pros and no doubt a fantastic time for all!

For more information go to The Kitchen Web Site - or hit em up on Facebook!

Donate to Support.BMX.FortWayne

I am proud to announce a new, but long overdue initiative by Riders, and all of the people over the years who have enjoyed our unique sport.  We are in the beginning stages of making something positive happen in our beloved City of Fort Wayne, IN.  We are looking for images, stories, videos, from people involved in our community who have impacted or just plain love the sport.

Our goal is to have a safe, legal place to ride our bicycles.  An outdoor place would be a great start, but ideally we would love to have something year round.  We have been very patient over the years and realize that now is the time to make things happen.  Visit our Facebook page to view all the content and you can help out the cause by Donating to the Support.BMX.FortWayne Cause by clicking the Pay Pal Donate button at the bottom of this Post!
