No registration is required.  If you have any questions about the Kids’ Rides please contact Andrea Jones.
 

These rides allow children to have fun while enjoying the outdoors and getting some fitness.  In addition to learning some biking skills, kids are taught respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users.  The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed.  Parents are welcome on the ride but not required.  Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitted helmet, and water for the ride.  All riders must wear closed-toed shoes - no flip flops or sandals.
