  • 80/35 BMX: is hosting a free open house on April 9th from 5:30-7PM.  This free experience will give families a hands-on, up-close-and-personal look at BMX Racing—the fastest growing family sport in America.  The open house encourages enrollment in our next Beginners-only League season for kids 4-15 years of age. The Des Moines BMX League is a Beginners-Only program, with five sessions of instruction and racing. It’s a great family atmosphere, which teaches bike-handling skills, and important life lessons.  The Spring 2024 Season runs five Tuesdays, starting April 16 (5:30PM-8:00PM).
