Organization: Tornado Alley BMX Parents Assoc.
Type: Bike Park
Tornado Alley BMX, in Amarillo, Texas, used a $7,500 grant to build a new track in the town’s athletic complex. The facility’s location enables kids to safely ride their bikes to the track, provides great exposure for the sport, and makes it easy for spectators to access BMX events. The committed volunteers at the Tornado Alley BMX Parents Association have organized effective programs to increase ridership at the track, with an emphasis on getting more girls into the sport. The association is also giving back to the community by hosting charity rides and events at the track to benefit local health and wellness organizations.
