Kids Ride


Each year on the final day of the Joe Martin Stage Race, race organizers work to promote cycling to the next generation of cyclists. This year in conjunction with the Fayetteville Public Schools and the local cycling team, Fayetteville Wheelmen; a free kid's fun ride for ages three through twelve years of age will take place during the criterium. Parents are encouraged to bring their children for a fun and supportive spin around the square. Ages three to twelve will have the opportunity to ride their tricycles or bicycles on a portion of the same course as the Pros.

The 3-5 year olds will pedal their little legs approximately 25 yards in front of thousands of cheering fans and 6-9 year olds will ride a two block version of the course. The map shows the route for each age group, plus where registration and parking areas are located. Each child receives a participation medal for making the trip around the course. This event is meant to promote health and participation - all are winners!
