You can pick up your child at 11:30 am at the same place you dropped them off. If you are riding in the ½ gulch race, you can pick up your child after your race. After you drop your child off, we will form groups and start working on
skills. You are encouraged to leave the area while we do this. After the skills session, we will head over to the short track located behind Mercy Regional Medical Center. At this time, we welcome your presence. All children must have a bike in good repair (no training wheels please) and a helmet. We will provide one adult for every eight children. In order to
participate, your child must be a proficient bike rider on paved and dirt surfaces. Make sure your child is fueled up with a good breakfast, used the bathroom and has sunscreen applied.
