We've said it before and we'll say it again, the importance of BMX shops to local scenes (and BMX culture) can not be underestimated and that's why we support them.
With all the extra attention on BMX right now via the Olympics we're asking for people who are getting into BMX for the first time to go and check out their local BMX stores like the ones listed below. These shops know BMX inside out and will be there for you as your BMX journey progresses. In many cases they've helped keep BMX going through the dark days and they deserve support now more than ever. And if you already know what's up, be sure to point any newcomers in the direction of these guys.
Check out our related section below for various local BMX stores interviews and look for more local BMX shop articles throughout the year here on DIG.
The shops listed are are current DIG Partner Stores from around the World and we wholly recommend them and the many other legit BMX stores and skateparks across the globe.
