iRide Kid’s Series

A new and exciting way to meet friends, learn cycling skills and earn prizes in a fun setting.

Cycling BC, in partnership with the LMCX Kazlaw Cup, is proud to announce a new pilot project, Cycling BC’s iRide LMCX Kazlaw Cup Kids Series.  This project is designed to help local youth experience the sport of cyclocross, and provide incentives for continued participation as the series travels across the region. This year our pilot project is focused on the Lower Mainland but has been designed to expand to other regions in the future given coach availability and local interest.

Registration:

Participation is free for all riders. Registration takes place on-site, at the regular race registration tent. A Cycling BC iRide Liability Waiver must be completed by the parent/guardian. There is no skill ability requirement to attend these events.

Each event provides participants with the following:

  • Free race entry (provided by Kazlaw)
  • A race number
  • An iRide Racer’s Pass (provided by Cycling BC)
  • Access to iRide’s pre-event skill session (optional)
  • Free iRide rental bike (only 20 available, sized for 8-11 yr olds)

Riders can participate on any style of bike (strider, kids, mtn bike, cyclocross). However at minimum, we recommend a clean, functioning bike with multiple gears.

Event Details:

The iRide skills session will take place in the kids race course area.  For riders participating in the skills session still on strider bikes or who exhibit Pre-iRide or Level 1 skill abilities, we request that parents accompany their child into the arena for the skills session.

U4/U6/U8 kids races will take place on a separate kids race area.  The U12 taster and U16 taster event will take introduce riders to the adult race track, often covering a full 1-lap distance!

Series Awards:

Participants can monitor their progress user their iRide Racer’s Pass.  Participants who attend at least 5 or more kids/taster events, can access Cycling BC awards in recognition of their dedication to cycling.

In order to claim your award, please follow the instructions on the back of your iRide Racer’s Pass (provided during registration at your first event) and email us a screenshot of your card with the official signatures to iride@cyclingbc.net. We will work with you to select a shirt size and coordinate delivery/pickup.

*Please note, our free membership draw is only available for non-Cycling BC members. This initiative aims to promote continued participation through the autumn and help new families get started in cycling.

Upgrading to Regular Youth Races:

At any time, riders can choose to advance to the regular youth categories, U13 and U15. Please note, that these events take place at 9.30am and a cyclocross bike is required to participate.  Registration fees do apply for these regular youth categories, including a $10 one-day license. However, thanks to LMCX Kazlaw Cup sponsor, Kazlaw Injury Lawyers, youth race entries have been heavily discounted and are available for only $15 per event. If you decide to try a regular youth category, you can still participate in the Kids/Taster races to earn participation points, so long as it aligns with the spirit of the Kids/Taster events.
