Competitions for the youngest – boys and girls from 1.5 to 4 years old – will be held in the region for the first time. Those who do not yet know how to pedal, but are already confident on balance bikes, will ride 300 meters along a flat but winding road.
“We came up with the idea to make such cute races on balance bikes to attract the youngest children to the sport, so that they would not be afraid to go the distance and participate. Our club is growing, whole families are joining us! For some, this will be the first full-fledged competition: we will determine the winners and prize-winners who will receive prizes from our sponsors,” Irina Novoselova, head of the VeloNAO club, told NAO24.
The balance bike competition will take place on Saturday, October 7 in the forest belt near the airport. Gathering of small participants at 14:00, start at 14:30.
