Event Details

Local Austin children’s bicycle manufacturer woom bikes USA has partnered with nationally recognized children’s media company Buddy Pegs Media to host the first annual Raise Riders Family Bicycle Weekend February 15 -17, 2019. The 3-day celebration of families on bikes will be hosted alongside the 28th Anniversary of the Austin Marathon and Health & Fitness Expo sister event.

Local families with children 10 and under, as well as families traveling miles into Austin for the Marathon, will choose from a full menu of on-the-bike and off-the-bike activities that reinforce the most iconic marker of childhood, riding on two wheels. The festival kicks off Friday morning, February 15th at the Palmer Event Center (home of the Health & Wellness Expo) and runs all the way through the Austin Marathon Finish Line Festival Sunday, February 17th.

The festival will also include two new youth bicycle categories in the Manzano Mile running race on Saturday morning. Kids 8 and under can enter either the “balance bike” or “pedal bike” category depending on ability levels. The Manzano Mile takes place on Riverside Drive behind the Palmer Events Center.
