Metro BMX - Bakersfield: $5 for Two Bicycle-Motocross Practice Sessions from Metro BMX ($10 Value)

America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $5, you get entrance to two bicycle-motocross practice sessions from Metro BMX, held Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Sam Lynn Ballpark Complex (a $10 value).

At Metro BMX's weekly bicycle-motocross practice sessions, seasoned BMX vets and neophytes alike hone their racing chops on a well-maintained dirt motocross track. Racers bring their own BMX bikes (without pegs) to the course for two hours of open ride practice, during which BMX'ers can train for future races, fine-tune their skills, and conquer one of the newest Olympic sports. Riders as young as 3 (with a parental waiver) and as old as 60 frequent Metro BMX, allowing for high-octane family bonding and cross-generational understanding without awkward rides through the park on a bicycle built for nine. Metro BMX encourages riders to bring along their own helmets, though loaner helmets are available at the track.

Metro BMX

Metro BMX's off-road dirt track is composed of curves, hills, jumps, and landings. Just as importantly, it's full of biking and motorcross enthusiasts of all levels ready to race, ride, teach, and learn. Count Kris Mulhause among them; Kris, a 27-year veteran, 10-time state BMX champion, and 2007 National Cruiser champion, operates the track and holds lessons for riders of all levels. On top of his racing experience, Kris holds a bachelor's in kinesiology and teaching credentials in physical education. At Metro BMX he opens the track to students, teaching them starting-gate balancing, turn techniques, and why it's not cool to make engine sounds with your mouth when you're on a bike. Metro BMX is a family-friendly track that invites adults and kids alike to spend time riding, watching, or even hosting a birthday party.
