Kids Ride-01

The All NEW KIDS RIDES

We are completely revamping our Kids ride program for 2021. This year, we will have 3 different kids ride distances, instead of just one kids ride! Lots of options for all levels of riders. The purpose of all of our kids rides is to introduce kids to cycling in a fun, non-competitive, safe, and traffic-free environment.

We will need parents of kids riding to be honest in their assessment of their kids riding ability. Parents are responsible for determining which distance is suitable for their children.

Here’s what the kids will receive: a finisher’s medal and a goody bag!

The kids ride is free!

We encourage parents of young riders who are more advanced to consider riding with them one of our longer distances (15km, 30km or 45km!) If parents aren’t able to ride with their kids in these longer distances, please contact us and we will endeavour to provide a chaperone rider for them.

KIDS RIDES Distances:
