Chester Township, NJ–  On Saturday May 9, parents and kids are invited out for Marty’s Youth Mountain Bike Challenge. This will involve mountain bike racing for kids in kindergarten all the way through High School.

The races start at 9:00 a.m. and will take place at Parker Road Preserve, located at 20 Parker road in Chester Township.   Kids will race against others in their age groups with the final race going off at noon.  The older High School racers will do multiple laps on the 3 mile circuit with the younger children doing shorter courses depending on their age.

The races are held on the newly built trails at the Parker Road Preserve and are open to all kids from grades K-12 with a knobby tired bike and helmet.
