Kid-Friendly Bike Races

The Gators Race Series includes four mountain bike races that are 100% designed with kids in mind. From balance bikers to rippers, there’s an option for all riders.  All races feature age- and skill-appropriate courses, extensive signage and course marking, safe starting lines, and lots of opportunities to spectate.

Each race is unique. Sign up for some, or sign up for all—it’s going to be a party on two wheels!

The Gators Race Series is open to the public; all riders must register in advance (see deadlines below).
