The Kiddie Kilo is open to anyone that can ride a bicycle, tricycle, a scoot bike... anything goes! Young children as little as 3 and 4 have participated in this fun ride around the track. Held on the first and third Friday of every month, show up a bit early to register, and don't forget your helmet! Friday Night Racing starts at 7:00 PM, the kiddie kilo usually starts around 7:30 PM, and not even in the worst case does the event run past 8:00 PM.
Class registration is currently suspended due to current state-wide restrictions in response to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding!
