Kids Ride-01

2022 Captial Bike Kids Ride

 

Our Capital Bike Kids ride offers 3 different distances, suitable for kids aged 2  to 10 years old. Kids may ride unsupervised on the closed course. 

The purpose of our kids' rides is to introduce young riders to cycling in a fun, non-competitive, and supportive environment. Parents are welcome to ride or run alongside their kids.

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 ambassador riders to accompany them.
