I think you have to have riding pants and a full face helmet to ride the course. Will they allow 26" bikes on th track?

Most BMX tracks will let you take a 26" bike on the course, but you typically have to do the following:

Pads on the stem and top tube
Use wire to strap your quick release level closed
No bar ends
Handlebars need to have plugs on the end

I also think some places put restrictions on clipless pedals, but I'm 100% on that.
