Bicycle riding isn’t just for adults! The best way to get kids to consider the sport of cycling is to have them experience how fun it is ride a bike.
Children’s races will be just prior to the professional events on Saturday, starting at 3:25 pm and Sunday, starting at1:45 pm. Kids ages Big Wheel to 12 will be able to race or ride across the exact same Finish Line as the pros. Our announcers and fans will make a whole lot of noise and guarantee that each kid will enjoy the ‘pro’ experience. We will line up the ‘racers’ according to their age groups, with the Big Wheel racers doing the shortest distance and moving back the start line for each successive category.
