On May 17 little cyclists will meet in the Tołpa’s park to enjoy some sport and competition. The MetLife Tour I Love My Little Bike 2015 involves bicycle races for children that are held simultaneously in twelve cities – including in Wroclaw.

This is the sixth Met Life Tour and the organizers have extensive experience in working with children, so parents do not have to worry about their safety. I Love My Little Bike Tour is not just racing. It is great fun combined with learning how to safely move around on the bike.

Therefore, children will be able to take part in attractions prepared as part of the special cycling zone, where police will provide expert advice and children will be able to practice their cycling technique on a special course with obstacles. There will also be competitions with attractive prizes, demonstrations of special police and fire-fighting equipment, as well as performances of plush mascots.

I Love My Little Bike Tour is scheduled for Sunday, so it will be a family event in the form of a picnic. The first event will start at 10 am in Tołpa’s park. Children love speed, so the main highlight of the day will be a race in which participants from 3 to 10 years old can take part. Thanks to the different age categories and groups of three, after each race all competitors will be on the podium steps and prizes will be provided for everyone. Every participant will be able to feel like a winner.

To participate in the race you have to meet several small but important conditions. First of all, you need to have with you a bike and a bicycle helmet. Also, before the picnic, parents should fill in the child’s application. The number of participants is limited.

Admissions by phone: 690-242-716 or e-mail: zapisy@wyscigirowerkowe.pl (the city in the subject of the e-mail).
