SLOW RACE (always the last event)




Picture12

OBJECTIVE

The objective is to teach balance and control of the bicycle, plus a little fun.

 

PROCEDURE
  • Riders must stay in lane, can not put foot down, last one to finish line is the winner.
  • Give them 2 or 3 practice runs.
  • The course should be laid out on a slight downhill if possible.
  • If time allows and you are comfortable with the concept, children can compete in a tournament to see who is the "slowest" of them all.
    • Children should be placed in age groups to compete against children of their age range.
    • Age group winners, plus one of "Rodeo Staff" compete for World Championship of being slow.
  • Children with training wheels must compete against each other. Rules are the same except they must keep their bikes moving at all times.
