500 'bikies' put pedal to the metal

YOU'RE never too young to start riding BMX - or too old for that matter.

More than 500 geared-up riders from near and far put the pedal to the metal during Maryborough BMX Club's Open Day at the weekend.

Among the record field was little Levi Bayntun, a two-year-old BMX sensation who showed no fear in his quest to become the fastest toddler on two wheels.

The Maryborough boy competed in the mini-wheelers on board a strider bike, which have not pedals so they are easier for children to ride.

Maryborough BMX Club president Jason Rufus said the quality of racing on the two days was exceptional and expects numbers for the annual event to grow in 2015.
