The Kids’ Race has become a highly recognized and anticipated element of BC Superweek, Canada’s largest professional road cycling series. On July 15th the PoCo Grand Prix will feature a Kids’ Race for young riders between the ages of 5 and 12 years. The Kids’ Race will be divided into two heats, with the 5 to 9 year olds racing one lap, and the 10 to 12 year olds racing two laps on the same 1.3 kilometre downtown track as the pros!
In addition to the Kids’ race, there will be a Kids’ Zone on-site featuring fun activities for the whole family. The City of Port Coquitlam will showcase their spirit of celebration, small town charm, and competiveness to be the best Kids’ Race and Kids’ Zone ever. From bike decorating stations, to the PoCo Grand Prix photo booth, and much much more – don’t miss your chance to get involved in all the exciting race day action before the women’s pro race kicks off at 6pm!
