Crankworx For Families

Crankworx

Seeing Crankworx through a child’s eyes really puts into perspective how inspiring and exciting the mountain bike festival of the summer season can be. Bikes everywhere, adrenaline-fuelled action, tasty food, and live music stimulates all the senses and can make a kid want to bike more than ever. For parents, the festival atmosphere can be intense, especially while trying to occupy and manage small children. We’ve put together a guide for families attending Crankworx so that every family member will have the experience of a lifetime. 

Events

There are a number of events that are perfect for all ages. What’s more, if the events interfere with sleeping and feeding schedules, the practice sessions are equally as interesting and often, have smaller crowds. 

The Clif Dual Speed and Style Presented by Muc-Off

Speed and Style is just what the name suggests-Fast riding and exciting tricks. The event takes place at the base of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park making it very accessible for those with little kids. On the day of finals, don’t feel that you have to attend the full event, stop in and when the kids lose interest, carry on to the next activity.
