    Dear friends,

    As summer is approaching, I invested my hard earned cash in a JiaLing CQR250 and another health insurance. ;-)
    So my question to all Beijingers - where is the right track? I have already been to the Goldenport Race Track, but the place is a bit too rocky for a thin-boned rider like me. I am looking for the sandy, soft soil with some (natural) kickers, hills, etc. Heard something about a place near 永定河, but that is a bit far from Beijing. What about the BMX track at LaoShan? Are dirt bikes allowed?
    Many thanks for your help!

    Hi
    Congrats with the bike.
    Google Earth: 40 02 46 16 N - 116 45 19 18 E East of the airport - here is a huge dry river bed.
    Really nice place to ride some sand - always some dirtbike riders/4x4 in the weekends.
    Maybe a place for a "Sunday MCM meeting"..... camping possible.

    hey guys, i'm moving to Beijing this summer for a 2yr work assignment. I have two boys that ride dirt bikes as well (65 and 85cc), is it easier for us to bring our bikes in our pod of stuff from the states, or just buy bikes locally? was wondering if i could find smaller bikes for my boys, or if most for sale locally in china were for adults. i appreciate any advice. thx!

    Welcome to the forum.

    You might want the start a new thread in the "Welcome to MCM" forum, and give a bit more detailed introduction to tell us exactly what you are looking for (in case replacement bikes are required). Furthermore people who might have more knowledge about this than me might miss your post in this thread.

    How old/tall are they? Depending on the bikes they are riding now, I'm not sure if you could easily find suitable spare parts for those. We have some really cheap mini dirt bikes over here, but they are of questionable quality I think. There should be something that fits them.

    Dear friends,

    just for your information, I found another track in the NW of Beijing.
    Coordinates are:
    40.048536 N, 116.133749‎ E
    or
    +40 2' 54.73", +116 8' 1.50"

    There is a dirt track, a kart track and an RC car track (from South to North).
    The park is called: 汇通诺尔狂飙运动乐园

    IMG_20120729_135619.jpgIMG_20120729_135628.jpg

    The young guy in the tourist office bordering the kart track, where they also rent small quads, told me, that the track was getting repaired in two weeks. Currently you can ride there for free, as it is in a bad condition (probably due to heavy rains plus lack of maintenance). Once it is repaired they will ask 3,500 RMB for a or 100 RMB per day including basic insurance (We'll see of that ;-)).


    He also told me about two other spots in Chaoyang District: one at 十八鲤 (yes, specifically this "鲤", not "里") and one at a place called "290km". I didn't find any of them, so if someone else knows anything, I would be happy to learn about it. Otherwise I will waste a lot of tyre rubber on my weekend excursion to the NW from now on.

    Thanks for reading.

    EDIT: I noticed, that the coordinates are not exact depending on what map (Baidu, Google) and view (Satellite, Map) you use. So check the picture below for reference.

    Hi fahni,

    Sorry, I didn't ask for that. But as they only had a few quads (the small kind) for rent, I guess they don't offer offroad training. But I will specifically ask next time I'm there. The guy did mention that they will have shows/demonstrations (表演) though.

    Update:
    - They are not offering any offroad training.
    - You must wear protective gear, if you wish to ride on the track.
    - The track will be repaired in 1-2 weeks (still), if they are sure that the rainy season is over.
    - The phone number of the Tourist Office for inquiries ("Is the track repaired yet?") is 010-62455588.
    - This is how they had the area planned:

    The track on the left will probably not be built.

    Cheers,
