Family, fitness and music come together at Bikestock; free family ride, kids criterium race

CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Featuring two exciting bike rides in one location, St. George Races’ annual Bikestock event will be the place to be on Feb. 6.

According to a press release from the city of St. George, the first race is free for families and individuals. It begins at Red Cliffs Mall at 8:30 a.m., and cyclists will choose between two lengths: 2 miles or 5 miles. Escorted by members of the St. George Races team, cyclists will depart from the mall parking lot to St. George’s acclaimed paved trail system. The first 150 pre-registered children will receive a free T-shirt and bicycle helmet.

The second race is the kids criterium, open to children ages 3-15, and will take place in the rear parking lot of the Red Cliffs Mall. Racers will be grouped by age and ride in a criterium format, which features as many laps as can be finished in a time frame dependent on age. All participants receive finisher awards, T-shirts and finish line snacks. Sign up here.

“It’s a great opportunity to get out of the house for a bike ride and some family fun,” Aaron Metler, recreation supervisor for races and special events with the city of St. George, said in the press release. “We will have a tie-dye area and a live band out at the finish line for some great music to listen or dance to.”

The criterium is limited to 150 cyclists. All children are required to wear helmets.
