There’s just no shortage of recreational opportunities in Augusta, GA. Recently my husband and I took our son to the Augusta BMX track. Brandon will start the second grade next month. He has never been to anything like this before, but he’s athletic and loves to ride his bike. We chose a Sunday evening to go check it out, which for us, worked out really well. There were just a few kids there when we arrived, all older than Brandon, but they were all nice and let him get on the track without feeling too intimidated. Soon we were the only ones there and Brandon could really try it out.
He loved it! You could see the exhilaration on his face as he sped down the gate, over the hills, and rounded the curves. There were a few minor scrapes, but all in all he toughed it out and can’t wait to go again. Augusta’s BMX track is at Wood St. and Division St. near downtown and is operated by the Augusta Recreation Department.
If you have any questions about the BMX track you can reach them at (706) 421-9892 or (877) 269-1269 ext. 11. It is free and open to the public during daylight hours. It is also home to the Augusta BMX Club. I definitely see more of this in our family’s future and look forward to a lot of fun and a heavy supply of band aids!
