Inquiring minds: What does 'BMX' stand for?

Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here are some of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately.

Q.  What does the acronym BMX stand for?  I know that it has to do with bikes, but what do the letters stand for?

A.     BMX stands for “bicycle moto-cross” and it refers to the sport of organized bicycle races on dirt tracks. The Library has a number of books on the sport.
