Bay Area BMXers
Rider James (Jim) Schloffel is currently 52 years young and, as a kid, only raced a handful of times. In the spring of 2016, after about 35 years, he got back onto a BMX track and soon joined 510 Bay Area BMXers. He races both cruiser and class bikes. He says that his teammates are tremendous to be around both on and off the track. The off-track programs, such as juvenile hall, food for the homeless, clothing drives and Flood the Street with Bikes, have been amazing to be a part of, says Jim. He'd like to add that being a part of B.A.B. has pushed him to be the best that he can be. With some hard work and support from the team, Jim finished the 2018 season with a win at the ROC and Grand Nationals.
