Balance Bike Race

August 7, 2021

Time: 9 AM - 1 PM
Location: Base Area
Category: Kids Race 


No pedals allowed! Designed for the little ones, the Meadows Balance Bike race is a fun way for kids to show off their bike and balancing skills. Kids race through the base area and compete against others their own age for the chance to win a prize for top finishing place for age group. All participants receive a participation medal and snack. This event is for kids 2 - 5 years of age, and is only for bikes with no pedals.  Children of all sizes and skill levels are welcome to participate. Each child must provide their own balance bike and helmet. We also recommend pants and long-sleeved shirts for at least the race portion of the event to help protect your child in case of a fall.


Registration will be online in advance and there is a limit of 20 kids per age group. We will have two groups - kids age 2 - 3 and 4 - 5, and the cost is $5 per racer. Winners will be decided by the best time out of two heats. Spots for ages 2 and 3 have sold out. There are a couple of spots for ages 4 and 5. Please email if you would still like to register. These spots will be filled on a first come first served basis based off the time stamp on the email.

We have scenic chair lift rides, hiking, games on the deck, a gift shop and an awesome menu in the Paradise Grill! Want to make a weekend of it? Reserve an RV parking spot in our main parking lot for Friday and/or Saturday night!
