Calling all (bike) race fans!!! On June 30, Media, PA is hosting bicycle races for licensed amateurs and pros at the inaugural Hometown Classic
Media (just minutes outside of Philadelphia) is known throughout the region for its outdoor events, making it an ideal town for a criterium (you know, a one-day bicycle race on a circuit road course).
And during the all-day race event kids between the ages of 5-8 years can take part in a special kid-friendly bike race just for them – the Nemours du Pont Pediatrics Kids Klassic. They will be racing a 3 to 4 block portion of the same course as the pros and will get a medal at the finish line.
So, bring the family, bring the friends, bring the team and enjoy the day! In addition to great racing and pro announcers and music there will be food, drink, merchandise, giveaways, kid’s activities and more. Picnic on the grass, set up a team tent on the sidewalk, or hang out with sponsors at Race Village.
Come before the kids races — which start at 2:30pm — or stay after and watch all the action.
The best part for moms and dads is that the Kids Klassic event is FREE, but you need to sign up. There is a limit on the number of kid racers, so register now at https://www.bikereg.com/media-hometown-cycling-classic
