Learn to ride BMX! Kids and anyone starting to ride a ramp for the first time, we would love to see you learn at The Factory!

Thanks again, you really made possible a memory that they will have forever. Thank you for everything.

Beginners/Kids Session Every Saturday 12-1pm: $20

Just show up! All ages welcome! This is the best way for kids to start… A simple, non-crowded way for you to get familiar with our facility. $20 to ride, bring cash or credit, & make sure you have signed our online waiver. This also includes a free 1-3pm open session right after the kids/beginner session so you can keep riding all afternoon and meet other riders. We even have extra bikes/helmets if needed.

Seriously a PERFECT way to introduce my kid to The Factory. Very friendly. Very welcoming. Can’t wait to go back.

These younger rider sessions are perfect for my son, there are tons of other kids just getting into it and there is no intimidation. It is a treat to watch the progression of all of these kids and getting to know The Factory Family.

One-On-One Private Lesson: $50/hr ($25/hr for members)

Although we recommend just showing up & starting with our beginner/kids session & learning with others at your similar level (and making new riding friends), we do also have one-on-one lessons available! We have experienced instructors who can teach all aspects of riding, how to pump a ramp, turn around on a quarter pipe, jump a box jump, and learn tricks into our foam pit. No matter what your skill level is, we can teach you.

$50 to ride with a private instructor, online payment required to book & reserve lesson time, make sure you have signed our online waiver, & follow the steps below to get started:


Our instructors are some of the very talented riders you may have seen at any of the BMX shows around the cities. The exact same riders you see doing tailwhips, flips, 720′s, etc. We have a variety of instructors available, feel free to browse the riders below, and if you would like to work with someone specifically just let us know! However we can also pick one for you, we will know who will be best for you depending on your age & skill level.
