The Lakes and Trails Festival this summer will feature a Cycle Skills competition, with prizes for different age groups. A leader board will be kept through the morning and participants are welcome to try again and improve their score. The skills events are:
1) The Paper Boy – Ride through a course with a bag of newspapers and deposit them in barrels – judged on time and accuracy
2) The Zig Zag – Ride between the lines on a pre-determined zig zag course. This event is geared towards younger riders, including those with training wheels – judged on accuracy.
3) The Slow Bike – How long can you take to ride between two points. – slowest rider wins!
Other cycling events at the Lakes and Trials Festival include the Around the Lake bike (21, 36 and 44K loops) and a 5k family cycle on the Cataraqui Trail. Bells, lights, and helmet fitting will be available to riders.
