NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Youth Cycling Series is canceled. We thank you for your support and hope to see you in 2021!
Northampton Area Pediatrics and the NCC join together to bring you the NAP Youth Cycling Series at Look Park.
This is a safe, fun racing series for kids held on a grass course by the sprinkler play area at Look Park for children 3-12 years of age. This popular series has been held for well over a decade. Push bikes and training wheels for the little ones are welcome, though training wheels are challenging on grass. Parents are welcome to accompany children on the course. We recommend push bikes for learning to ride and will have some on hand for kids to try out. Helmets are required for all riders.
Race registration is free thanks to our generous sponsors! Look Park does charge an entrance fee, but entering the park by bike is free.
When: Mondays in July
Where: Look Park, grass next to sprinkler play area
Time: Plan to arrive by 5:30 PM
Races: Start at 6:00 PM
We start course setup at 4:30 PM, so kids that arrive around 5:15 PM or a little after can begin riding the course right away. We’ve found that kids like riding the course with their friends before and after the races as much as the actual racing. Parents are welcome to ride the course as well.
Reminder: We won’t run if it’s raining at Look Park or if there’s severe weather. Cancellations will be announced on Facebook and Twitter as well as on the NCC website by 4:00 PM each Monday.
If you wish to help with set-up or break-down you are more than welcome to join us. Many hands make light work. We will start to set-up around 4:30 PM. Thanks, and hope to see you all there.
