The KT Kids ride is a guided ride on the Kingdom Trails network for kids from ages 7-11. Guides and tips are provided by the Kingdom Trail Association with special help from Team ideRide. Children of all ability levels are encouraged to join. We will be riding on varied terrain and traveling both up and down some fairly big hills. If you’re child is a beginner mountain biker, and there is a question as to whether they may need extra help, a parent will need to tag along.
Your child must arrive equipped with a safely functioning bike that has at least 6 gear options, and hand brakes. As well as proper attire, a bike helmet, water and nutrition that they can carry themselves.
Participation is free for Kingdom Trails members and $5 for non- KT members.
The ride will always start at 5:15 and end around 7:00ish. Drop off and pick up Locations will vary weekly (always on the KT Network) which will be announced on the KT Kids Ride Facebook page and through email by the Wednesday before the ride. Drop off and pick up locations may be different. Please check the announcement closely.
The ride may be cancelled due to wet conditions or forecasted rain/lightening. That will be posted by noon of the day of the ride, once again by Facebook and email.
