The Hawks BMX Club have been running since 1981, promoting the sport of Bicycle Motocross racing since it's early beginnings in this country. We are run as a non-profit organisation who's aim is to develop, organise and promote BMX racing in the Hillingdon Borough and surrounding area.
We currently operate from the Lake Farm BMX Track at Lake Farm Country Park, Dawley Road, Hayes. The track is public, free, and open for use at all times except during club events. Beginners are encouraged to come along to one of our organised events, where we can provide limited club bikes and safety gear, together with expert guidance to get you started. We are affiliated to British Cycling, who are the governing body for racing in the UK and form part of the Southern BMX Region.
The Hawks regularly host local and Regional races at our home track, and many of our members also represent the club at National and International level. There is usually a large contingent of Hawks riders at most of the big races and we also organise fund-raising and social events throughout the year. We hold regular coaching sessions during the school holidays, and one night a week during the summer months.
Future plans for the track (subject to funding) include a full rebuild to National standard, the construction of a dirt jump area for various abilities, and a concrete skatepark, in partnership with Hillingdon Council, is now in the final stages. The overall plan is to combine all of the bmx disciplines within our venue.
We have successfully ran free bmx coaching sessions during the school holidays for the last two years and also purchased BMX Bikes and safety gear thanks to funding from the following groups, Community Cohesion & Local Childrens Network Fund.
We are always looking for new riders to join our club, both young novices and oldschoolers making a return! and if it's your kids that want to do the racing we always welcome the help of parents at our events.
