RACE TIME: 3:30 PM
Children who are psyched to bike will get the chance to feel the thrill of competitive cycling by riding in the West Chester Dental Arts Kids’ Race.
Don’t forget the camera! Friends and families will cheer on the kids as they frantically pedal their Big Wheels, tricycles, and two-wheelers towards the finish line. All children between the ages of 3 and 10 are invited to participate in this free event. There will be four categories of races: 3-4 years of age, 5-6 years of age, 7-8 years of age, 9-10 years of age, with race distances determined by age and ability. To participate, all a boy or girl needs are their bike of choice, helmet and the permission of a parent or guardian.
