Chiltern Cycling Festival to hold Baby Keirin Championships

Under fives to race around track behind Big Motors in first event of its kind this July

Huge crowds are expected to witness the high speed action as toddlers get their chance to tear around behind the big motors on the Baby Velodrome as part of 'The Chiltern Cycling Festival'. Under fives will be given their very own chance to fight it out at high speed in a classic Derny Dual event on July 13.

Based on the Baby Velodrome circuit, kids on balance bikes and trikes will be towed up to approx 42mph behind the derny pacer, before it swings off leaving them to sprint for glory.
