The Kids Urban is the perfect introduction to Downhill riding. The Albany Mountain Bike Club will be holding a Kids Urban Downhill event, for children aged 5 to 12. This event will differ from previous years, being focused on the ‘Urban’ in Urban Downhill, and will be run on hard surfaces. 2019 will bring some new challenges, designed for the more confident young rider.
This year the event will be truly part of the Urban, with the race held on Stirling Terrace, next to the finishing area for the Optus Urban Downhill! As there are no soft landings, riders require suitable clothing for the style of riding – See Safety Notes.
Thanks to Impulse Cycles this year will be FREE OF CHARGE.

Racing will start at 08:00am
The event is open to kids aged between 5 -12yrs.
