About This Activity

With the help of family, friends, and local businesses the Children with Disabilities Foundation started the Bike for Kids Idaho event 6 years ago. It is our belief that every child deserves the chance to ride a bicycle. Unfortunately, many children with special needs are not able to ride traditional bikes. Many special needs children are bystanders as they watch their friends, siblings, and neighbors ride bicycles. Very costly and specialized adaptations are needed for them to ride. Therefore, the event helps provide adaptable bicycles to these children and their families!

Our slogan is "Take a Ride- Help Give a Bike!" Come watch your children ride their bikes in a criterium race, then take a ride together as a family. After that you can enjoy lunch and carnival games hosted by Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center!

Event details and schedule


What events can we participate in?


This year we will offer a kids criterium, a family 4 mile ride, and a 1 mile COLOR RUN or walk!

Kids Criterium Categories: we will feature a ¼ mile loop that the children will race their bicycles. 3rd-6th grade will complete two laps! The course will be blocked off from any vehicles to ensure your child's safety.


Criterium Races                     

Recipient Parade                                 Begins at 10:00 a.m.                          

Pre-K                                                                    10:10 a.m

1st grade                                                               10:20 a.m

Family 4 mile ride:                                                11:45 a.m.-12:30 a.m.

The family ride will start and end at the arch way! We will travel down Snake River parkway and complete a loop around the south part of the greenbelt. The City of Idaho Falls will help control/block traffic in many areas to ensure the safety of your family. A few water and popsicle stops will be offered! **Some surprises along the course will be awaiting the riders. We will give you a hint: (possible color chalk, special superhero appearances, and treats.)


Color Run/Walk Option: 12:00 p.m.

Not everyone has the chance to ride a bicycle at the event. For example, they may be on the waiting list for an adaptable bicycle, or they may not have vehicle suitable to transfer their bike. Therefore the 1 mile color run/walk option is great for those wanting to support our cause and get active with their families. Come enjoy a very fun Color run/walk! A few obstacles will a long the way to add in the excitement!


Carnival and Barbeque: 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

All bike riders and families are welcome to join EasternIdahoRegionalMedicalCenter and eat lunch and play a few carnival games! Come enjoy jump houses, face painting, balloon animals, snow cones, ice-cream, an obstacle course, and more!

What to bring?

Please bring your bikes, helmets, proper shoes and clothing, and your SMILES!

Bike helmets will be available to purchase for $5.00 if you do not have one.



If you choose not to order a t-shirt with your registration, please wear your Bike Month T-shirt or a white t-shirt. The color chalk shows up better on a white t-shirt! J


Can I donate?

Absolutely! You can donate via paypal on our website. We would be so grateful for your support! You can even choose a bike, for a child on our waiting list, that you would like to help purchase.


How can I help my local school?

Help your school and your fellow classmates too! When you register you indicate which school you support! The school with most students participating will be awarded with a new piece of playground equipment!

Where to go?

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your first event. Please come check-in or register at our Bike for Kids Idaho tent that will be located east of Stockman's restaurant. In the adjacent parking lot you will find signs that correlate with your specific criterium age category. So, if your child is registered for the 1st grade criterium, your child and their bike will go set up near the 1st grade sign!


What do to after we ride our bicycles?

After you are finished riding your bicycles in the criterium you will receive a medal and can get your picture taken in front of the archway! You can then wait with your bike in the "Bike Waiting Zone" or watch the other criterium races until the family ride begins. We encourage all faster riders to be at the front of the waiting zone for the family ride.  After the family rides or the criterium races (if you choose not to ride in the family ride as well) you can take your bike back to your vehicle and then participate in the carnival and enjoy lunch.
