Little Critter Race Schedule

Little Critter Race Schedule in Fernie BC

From the facebook event page:

“It’s time once again for another Little Critter Criterium! Criterium style rides are where competitors complete as many laps of a short course as possible in the allotted time. For every lap of the course completed the rider puts his/her name in for draw prizes. This fun event is geared to riders 12 years and under. (Training wheels are not appropriate, run bikes and tag along bikes are okay.) You must have a current FMBC membership which can be found online at www.bikefernie.ca

P.S. Parents…wear running shoes as your children are faster than your flip-flops!”
