The sixth annual Hilltop Grasshopper Kid’s Mountain Bike Race is on for Saturday, August 15. This is a specially prepared course for both new and experienced riders. Any bike with fatter tires is ideal and mechanics will inspect all bikes for safety and last minute race tuning.
Racing starts at 8 a.m., but registration and inspection opens at 7:30 a.m. and closes 15 minutes before start of each category. Participants must pay a $10 registration fee and sign a waiver, and the participant’s bicycle must pass a technical inspection. A parent or guardian must be present to sign waiver and must be present during the race.
