The legendary Mike’s Bikes Cat's Hill Classic invites up to 96 kids, up to age 9, to a special Kid's Ride on the famous Cat’s Hill race course. The 42nd Anniversary Mike’s Bikes Cat’s Hill Classic will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2016. Maybe your child is a potential Greg Lemond, or maybe they just love riding their bike or trike. Bring them to the Kid’s Ride and let’s have fun together!
The Kid’s Ride will be divided into
two age groups: Ages 6 and younger and Ages
7 through 9 years old for a total of 96
participants. The kids will get the thrill
of crossing the Official Finish Line on
Tait and Nicholson Avenues, with all the
applause and official announcements. All participants will receive a USA Cycling Junior Olympic medal in this fun race. There is official Junior
Category races for Ages 15 and up, which
are listed on the Race Announcement at www.catshill.org/2016announce.html.
Registration for the Kid’s Ride is from 8:30 am to 11:00 AM or until 96 kids have been registered, whichever comes first. Parents must register their children at the Registration Area behind the announcer's stand at the start/finish line on the corner of Tait and Nicholson Avenues. Registration is free, and kids will receive a ride number. Parents or legal guardians must sign a liability waiver; other adults, neighbors or friends may not register other people's children. Helmets are mandatory for the Kid’s Ride. The kid’s ride is approximately 0.2 miles, i.e., about one long block.
The kid’s race is approximately 0.2 miles: about one long flat block with no turns.
The Kid’s Ride will start promptly at 12:30 pm on the corner of Bean and Tait Avenues, near St. Mary’s Church. After registering, parents and children will assemble at the Staging Area on Bean Avenue, outside the race course, between 12:10 and 12:20 pm. The course will be closed to kids until the Kid’s Ride begins. Parents need to be aware that there will be riders racing on the course all day, so parents will need to bring their children on the sidewalk from the Registration Area to the Staging Area.
