Youth Riders

Youth Ride for FREE

In support of youth cycling development, we are pleased to offer fully subsidized registration for all riders age 18 & under for all distances. Pricing will be adjusted during registration and you'll be required to answer additional questions during registration.

Youth riders can choose the distance of their choice, but must abide by the following:

  • Riders age 15 and under must ride with an adult supervisor at all times
  • Riders age 16 – 18 may ride unsupervised
  • All riders age 18 and under must have their waiver signed in person by a parent/guardian at Rider Check-In

The Tour de Victoria offers riders a world class cycling experience, on world class roads. The event is non competitive, yet presents risks due to the terrain, length of ride and volume of participants. Given the challenges associated with riding in a mass participation cycling event, we ask that both the rider and parent/guardian carefully consider the youth rider’s level of participation and are both aware of the risks associated with riding in our event.
