i'm 36 and just started looking into BMX. not sure where to start. wondering if there are old fat guy classes haha. i wanted to do BMX as a kid but wasn't allowed to. i wasn't allowed to do dirtbikes either, but i've been riding for the past 8 years now. no racing though. just trail riding.
was trying to find out some info on straight BMX...no freestyle or anything.
i don't know yet if i really want to pedal...haha...but...i've started to think about it and trying to look into...i'm in the SF bay area...
so, yea, i'm kinda clueless at the moment. i don't think i've even seen RAD. haha.

i meant like the vet 35+ classes for racing (like they have for MX)...not like a class to learn how to ride...
i don't know what'll come back cuz i never did it before...ha...
still looking around to see what i can find...

I've just started again at exactly the same age as you, so I certainly don't think you're too old. Think about why you want to ride BMX and where/how you want to ride. If you're into dirt bikes I'm guessing you want to do some dirt jumping? You're best going to a store that stocks a decent range of bikes to see which one suits you and appeals to you. I've got a flatland bike, which is pretty heavy and small, which makes it unsuitable for street, vert or dirt, for example.
