Kids Criterium and Zone


From 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, the Kids Zone is open for kids to enjoy numerous activities. Face painting, music, fitness displays and activities, rides, moon walks, and more are a few of the activities available.


The Kids Criterium features races for kids ages 5-14. To participate you need a bike and a helmet. Bike races are run in heats. Kids under the age of 9 will start at 11:30 AM and kids 10 and older will start at 12:00 PM. Racers are grouped by age, type bike and gender. All kids receive t-shirts (with entry fee), a prize package, and recognition for their achievement.


The Twilight Big Wheel Race gives kids 5 and under an opportunity to ride in their own race on trikes or big wheels. This event is on College Avenue in front of City Hall at 11:00 AM. Kids wishing to participate will need a Big Wheel or trike and of course a helmet. All kids receive t-shirts (with entry fee), a prize package, and recognition for their achievement.


All participants are invited back to ride in the Twilight Kids Parade Lap at 7:00 PM. All kids returning for this should meet at turn 3 (Washington and Thomas) by 6:50pm.


Don't miss the pro rider tour to area schools. During the two weeks prior to the Twilight, riders will be visiting area schools talking about their experiences as cyclists, showing off their equipment, and encouraging safety and fitness through lifetime individual participation sports. The schedule of the Twilight School Visits is as follows:
