Kid's Cross

Kid's 'Cross has changed this year - events all day! Don't worry, though, they will still be fun, non-competitive events for kids 10 and under sponsored by Speedvagen Racing Machines in support of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance's goal of getting more kids on bikes more often. Get all the details.

You can register for the October 13 race online before October 11 at 9pm.

Racers may also preregister by sending a completed OBRA waiver (PDF) and check payable to "Club Vivo" to:

Crusade Registration
7025 SW 7th Ave
Portland, OR 97219

MUST be received no later than Thursday before the event. If it is not received by Thursday, you will have to pay at the event and will be refunded at the next event.

If you pre-register and you already have your Cross Crusade number, you can sign in a "self-service" line. If you need a number, there will be a separate line for pre-registered riders to pick-up numbers.

If you prefer to wait, day-of-event registration will be available at each race venue. Save time by printing out a waiver (PDF) and completing it at home.


Check out the series rules & prizes!


Most bikes are legal – Mountain bikes, 'cross, cruisers, unicycles, etc. But take heed: courses will favor those on 'cross bikes – so choose your weapon wisely! Please no fixed gears or bikes with bullhorns or bar ends.
