Why the UCI Ban on Clipless for Kids is a Great Idea.

Last week the UCI voted to ban clipless pedals in BMX Racing for kids 12 years and under. While some people question the move, I feel that it is a great idea and something that should serve as a model for all cycling sports.

Banning clipless pedals for kids has a lot of advantages, including increased safety and better skill development. It will also make the sport more approachable and inspire more kids to stick with racing.

In this video I explain why this is and some of the other reasons that this is a great idea for the future of BMX racing:

If you have any thoughts or comments please leave them under this post, I’d love to know what other people think about this. Until next time…

Ride Strong,
