Like2Bike, nurtures early cycling development and has been in operation since 2012.
We are an events company that specializes in promoting and organizing kids cycling and running events, as well as children-specific skills clinics.
The Like2Bike event series consists of 6 events throughout the year.
There are great distances on offer for mountainbike and duathlon categories, on various trails in and around Gauteng.
The children can be entered into FUN categories: 2km, 5km, 10km and duathlon where mom/dad can run/ride for no extra cost other then the childs entry, and child's number board. The racing snakes will tackle the 10km and 15km routes solo.
The duathletes have 3 distances to choose from: POWER: 2km run, 10km MTB, 1km run. MID: 1km run, 5km MTB, 500m run and LITE: 500m run, 2km MTB, 250m run.
If your child completes 4 of the 6 events, they receive a series champ cycle top at the end of the series.
Our skills clinics and school extra murals skills clinics are great fun and confidence boosters. Your child will learn valuable handling skills both on, and off, the bike.
In addition to the Like2Bike events, we organise events for schools, estates and corporates and assist in event fund raisers such as The Beaulieu Challenge
Be belive in giving the child opportunities to learn and grow with confidence, getting outdoors and letting kids, be kids!
Join us and let your child be part of a new generation of athlete!

Whilst these are fun rides, we are teaching and entrenching rider etiquette within our kids. 1)Keep left & pass right. If over taking, notify the rider ahead by saying ‘passing on the right, keep left’ . 2) If walking or off your bike, keep to the left of the track so that riders can still pass you. 3) Keep calm, relax, and enjoy. It’s usually the adults who become frustrated if there is a hold up. Just remember that many of these children are new to cycling & are still developing the skills to ride. Adults should be mindful to encourage them and not show their annoyance at having to wait for them – this morning is all about the kids having fun on their bikes. If there is a hold up on the route, please help where you can. It’s a FUN ride first and foremost.
MOST NB - Please check your children’s bikes before the event, ie. Ensure the tyres are pumped and not worn, brakes (if they have) are working, and saddle heights are correct. Remember these little guys and girls are growing all the time and the saddle height needs to be checked regularly.
Closed shoes also a good idea. We will have all sorts of kids cycling gear on sale. We can accept payments using Snapscan if you would like to purchase gear.
It is compulsory that all parents and children attend the ride & safety briefing a few minutes before each start, so please give yourselves enough time to get there.
NO HELMET - NO RIDE. We suggest all participants wear gloves if possible, which will protect their hands should they have a fall.
CHARITY: If anyone has any 2nd hand outgrown bikes and cycling gear, you are welcome to bring them along to the event. We are supporting a development cycling initiative in Centurion and they are desperate for any ‘once loved’ cycling gear.
We accept entries on the morning at the event, so tell all your friends to join you for the ride. Only pre-entries will received a goody bag.

The events are aimed at 2-14 year olds and are a standalone event.
They are not tagged on to an adults cycling event. Children having fun on their bikes, with their families in tow, are the focus of the day! The distances are 2, 5, or 10km with recommended ages being 2-3yrs for the 2km, 4-6yrs for the 5km, and 7-14 yrs for the 10km. The duathlon will be either a 1km run followed by a 5km cycle, or a 2km run followed by a 10km cycle. We encourage parental participation too!
This really is a fun filled morning out for families, and scenic, child friendly cycling venues have been selected. Each child will receive a medal and a great goodie bag. If the child participates in 4 of the 6 events, then they will also receive a ‘series champion’ T at the series final.
