Course: All BTKK courses are designed for safety and fun, with beginner kids in mind, and are usually about 1/4 mile in length. At many events, a separate shorter course is set up for kids on training wheels. The courses are always close to the venue area to allow easy spectating for parents and friends.
Categories: Training Wheels (all ages), 6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12. Depending on number of racers, fields may be combined or split into boys and girls classes. The younger categories will usually do one lap, and the older categories will do two laps.
Awards: All participants will receive products from Clif Bar and Shimano. Medals will be handed out at the finish of each race; all kids will receive a medal.
Kids must be 12 years old or younger to participate
Helmets must be worn at all times during Kids Kup. If the child does not have a helmet, BikeTexas will provide one.

Kids MUST attend the safety clinic to race.
Parents are allowed (and for younger kids, encouraged) to follow their children on foot while they are racing.
When not racing, Kids Kup participants cheer for everyone racing.
