In Bathurst we are really pushing to get our kids riding and racing on interesting trails which are fun yet achievable for all abilities. So this won’t be just a kids race around a car park, but on a specially designed kids trail approx. 2-3km long (TBC). There are some uphills, downhills and easy obsacles to challenge riders, but it will be lot’s of fun! So please come and join us and give your kids the opportunity to feel the buzz from team participation in an endurance format.
