The 4th Annual River District Criterium Bike Race returns to Liberty Lake’s River District on Tuesday, August 9th. This Criterium race is one of the races in the Twilight Series hosted by the Baddlands Cycling Club. River District sponsors the spectator friendly race.
This family friendly criterium bike race in the River District community has grown in size to include the popular “just for fun” kids’ races before the adult bike racers take to the course. The race takes place around the award-winning Half Moon Park with racers reaching speeds over 35 mph as they play-out team strategies. Neighbors and visitors bring their lawn chairs to sit and watch the race in the park. Kids play in the park during the races.
Wood fired pizza will be provided by Veraci Pizza. Desserts and refreshments will also be available. Kid’s activities, prizes and drawings will occur throughout the evening.
This event is on August 9th from 5:15pm to 9pm. Parents can pre-register for the kid’s races online. In person registration runs from 4:30pm to 5pm. All kid racers must be at the starting line by 5pm and have a parent or guardian present. Kids will be grouped by age and size at the starting line. Helmets are required for all racers.
