Ride the courses

At each Kingdom Crit there will an opportunity for everyone to ride around our race courses.

You can join in and ride with your family or friends.  We will count how many laps you manage to do.  This is suitable for beginner cyclists, under 6s, balance bikes, anyone a little bit wobbly or just wanting to have a nice meander round our courses.

Race the courses

If you want the thrills and spills of a race, you can sign up for a race with children of the same age.

The Kingdom Crits races will give children the opportunity to try out what it feels like to go a bit faster, a bit harder and put their best efforts in for the chance of a podium.

Race the Worlds

At two of our races there will an opportunity for young people age 10-16 to take part in Scottish Cycling's Race the Worlds qualifying events.

If you win, you will be entered into the Final which will take place onsite at the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships venue.  Everyone will be entered into the prize draw to win tickets for a cycle event at the Championships in August.

All participants will receive rewards for their efforts and our aim is to have fun, try something new and cycle for the fun of it.

No booking is required for the riding round the course but you will need to check in so we can give you a timing chip and enter you into the prize draws.

Racing the Kingdom Crits requires booking - links will be published on this website and on social media in due course.
