Kids Only Bike Races

Kids Only Bike Races That Brings Families Together!

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

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.
