Races That Bring Families Together

A Kids Only Bike Race!

Pedal Kids Race Series was created by Buddy Pegs to motivate children 2-11 years to bike more often by giving them lifelong memories.

Our races give children opportunity to:

  • Show off their bike skills to friends and family
  • Experience the anticipation of a starting line
  • Savor the unique feeling of accomplishment earned at the finish line
  • Build lifelong memories

Awards & Results

While the primary goal is to celebrate effort and accomplishment, we do believe in the podium too.

Special awards are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category for both boys and girls.

Individual results will be posted online after each race day so you can choose whether to go over the detailed results with your child, or simply bask in the glow of the job well done!

Kids Deserve A Chance To Show Off Their Skills!

Races are held on community parks utilizing a variety of paved trails, grass, and beginner friendly dirt trails (when available).

Distances are adjusted for age, children are always in sight, and courses are extremely spectator friendly.
