ST. GEORGE — Two exciting bike rides in one location makes St. George Races’ annual Bikestock the place to be Feb. 6.

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 and 5 miles. Escorted by members of the St. George

Races team, cyclists will depart from the mall parking lot to the 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 to 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,” said Aaron Metler, recreation supervisor for races and special events. “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.
