The ‘little critters’ of Fernie rode into the warm weather at the Fernie Bike Park on Monday night.


The Little Critter Criterium Rides are the latest addition to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC).


Children 12 and under raced their bikes around the course, entering their name into a draw with each completed lap.


FMBC Board Member John Shaw was there to cheer on the little ones braving the flat trail.


After 45 minutes of riding, bike related prizes were given to the eager riders include Fox riding gloves and bike lights.


Gear Hub, Giv’Er Shirt Works, Edge of the World and several other local stores sponsored the event with their prize donations.


The next ride is on July 7 at Maiden Lake. The rides are free to FMBC members. Pedal bikes, run bikes and trailer bikes can be used on the trails.
