The Cycle Fair is the warm up before the ride! Come check it out from 10 am to 1 pm:
NEW! Bicycle-powered carousel and water cannon! Built locally by Marys River Metalworks, LLC, riders work together to make this kid-powered carnival ride go! If you really want to go the distance, try the bicycle-powered water cannon, too.
Off-road bike course with Team Dirt: Located in the grass by the tennis courts, kids can practice balancing and maneuvering their bikes on and through obstacles and cultivate a love of off-road riding.
Face Painting with Sparkling Faces Face Art
Bicycle-powered Spin Art where people power meets creativity.
Safety Skills with Corvallis Safe Routes to School: Find them in the tennis courts and practice hand signals, right of way, and much, much more!
Peak Sports. Find them next to Team Dirt’s off-road course and tune up your bike before the ride.
Zia will be there with free mini-quesadillas for registered riders (until supplies last)!
Jamba Juice is giving away free smoothie samples for registered riders! (until supplies last)
Bike Swap and Bicycle Maintenance with Corvallis Bicycle Collective: Ask-a-Wrench volunteers will show you and your kids how to fine tune your child’s bike before s/he starts the ride. It’s great hands-on experience and they can also show you basic bike maintenance skills you can practice at home. Bring a bike for the swap, too! It’s a great way to trade for the appropriate sized bike.
Helmet Fitting with Mid-Valley Bicycle Club: Those helmets need to be snug to be safe. MVBC will show you how a helmet should fit and help your child get road-ready!
Chalktrail: we’ll have one at the Learn to Ride station. Make a chalk drawing using your bike!
Trick Out Your Bike: Every bike needs a little bling! Decorate a bike . . . a helmet . . . yourself . . . just keep it safe for the ride. We’ll be there with lots of fun stuff, you bring the creativity!
Learn to Ride: The transition to independent riding requires confidence, patience and a little motivation. With so many kids on bikes at the event, it may be just enough for your emerging two-wheel rider! Practice on the MyKick donated by Burley for practice, use a handle that attaches to your child’s existing bike to make it a little easier, or run alongside the old-fashioned way. We’ll be there to support you and your child.
Fuel up at Zia and McWeenie’s!
Our prize giveaway starts promptly after the ride ends at noon and all registered riders are automatically entered to win. Local bicycling educator Jay Thatcher will share his bike safety knowledge with all the kids, too!
Did we mention our goodie bags? Goodie, for sure! All registered riders get one – as supplies last, but we’re ready for a lot of you!
