Children & Youth
- Everyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and have the consent of a parent or guardian to participate in Bike Virginia.
- All youth under the age of 16 must be under the supervision of an adult at all times.
- All children under the age of 12 must ride on a tandem, trailer bike or in a trailer. Children under the age of 12 cannot ride a single bike.
The bike tour can be strenuous on young children even when riding in a cart or on an adult’s bike. High temperatures, sun exposure and long periods on the bike can be difficult and even dangerous for children. Please consider carefully your child’s limitations and what is best for your family’s health and enjoyment.
SAG (support vans) do not carry child safety seats and may not be able to accommodate children. It is best to provide your own SAG support for children on the tour.
