[ARCHIVED] Register Now for Weekends On Your Wheels

Weekend on Wheels

January 12, 2018

Registration is open for “Weekend On Your Wheels,” a youth mountain bike race series at York County’s New Quarter Park. The program invites kids ages 3 to 18 to enjoy the park’s mountain bike trail designed especially for children. The first race of the series will begin Sunday, March 25, with registration at 12:45 p.m. and race time at 1:30 p.m. The next races will be held at the same times on Sundays: April 22 and 29, May 20, and June 3, with the rain date on May 13. 

Bikers interested in the series should come to meet staff and pre-ride the trails on Sunday, March 18, at 12:45 p.m.

The youth mountain bike trail has three courses:

  • the short course designed for kids 6 and under who ride push and balance bikes and for elementary/novice (no training wheels) riders,
  • the medium course designed for elementary/intermediate riders, usually in middle school or ages 11 to 14, and
  • the long course designed for high school riders ages 14 to 18

Parents must be present and riders are required to wear a helmet. A geared bike is necessary for middle, high school, and advanced riders.  Push bikes, balance bikes, or strider bikes are suggested for younger participants.  No training wheels, pegs, or axle extenders are allowed.

The registration fee for the series is $25 per child and $20 for each additional child in the same family.  To race only one or two races, the registration fee is $10 per race day.  All participants will receive ribbons and a number plate for their bikes. 

For more information, call the Parks, Recreation and Tourism (PRT) office at (757) 890-3500 or New Quarter Park at (757) 890-5840.  Participants can register online at www.yorkcounty.gov/parksandrec, at New Quarter Park (1000 Lakeshead Drive), or at the York County PRT office (100 County Drive). Registrations will also be taken at the pre-ride on March 18th at New Quarter Park.

New Quarter Park is located near the Queens Lake neighborhood. Exit from the Colonial Parkway at Queen’s Lake.  Turn right at the end of the exit ramp and travel a short distance to Lakeshead Dr. Follow the signs for 2 miles to New Quarter Park.  The youth mountain bike trail is located on the right with access to the trailhead from the overflow parking lot.
