Kids Mountain Bike Race - Saturday August 21st

The Hilltop Reservation in North Caldwell will host a kid’s bike race on Saturday August 21. The event starts at the North Caldwell sports field parking lot on Courter Lane and Mountain Avenue.

This is the first chance for most youngsters to try bike racing really close to home on a track specially created for this event.

There's open fire roads and winding single track through the forest. Spectator viewing should be exceptional.

Racing starts at 9:00am

$10.00 fee payable on site for each competitor and all racers’ parents must complete and sign a rider release application.

There will be a minimum of four age groups competing (grouped by grade in Fall 2010 school year):

K – 1st grade boys 9:00am, girls 9:05, 0.6 miles

2nd – 3rd grade boys, 9:20am, girls 9:25, 1.2 miles

4th – 5th grade boys, 10:00am, girls 10:05, 2.4 miles

6th – 8th grade boys, 10:45am, girls 10:50, 3.0 miles

Boys and Girls will race separately but some boys and girls age classes may be combined depending on number of competitors in the classes.

Top prizes will be awarded for 1st – 3rd positions and everyone receives and award recognition for competing.
