…’cause the Little Nutty Kids’ Zone is back, and it’s better than ever.
No need to schedule a babysitter for this weekend’s Seattle Bicycle Expo. After all, the under-16 crowd gets in for free — and we’ll have a full schedule of kid-friendly activities to keep the kids smiling between bouts of shopping for a new set of bike fenders or laying plans to pedal in far-away lands.
Check out the full schedule of kids’ activities, but here’s a sampling of what’s in store:
Practice your pirate swagger: Grab a treasure hunt map as you enter the show, then travel across uncharted aisles, solving riddles, decoding clues and hunting for the hidden treasure.
Make jewelry: Come help us turn old bike tubes into new bracelets. We’ll supply the tubes, snaps, stamps and inspiration; you come with the creativity.
Learn to ride: Let our team of experts help you practice the skills you need to toss out your training wheels and ride on your own. Saturday only, 9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m in the performance area on level 1.
Be a stunt devil: Ride our bikes and show us what you’ve got on our Wheelie Fun Course. But don’t forget your mittens — we’re taking this one outside. Saturday & Sunday, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Test your power: Compete against your friends (or your parents) at our “Watts-Up” CompuTrainer station, and find out how much pedal-power it takes to turn on a light bulb and a television.
Play carnival games: Come one, come all! Test your throwing distance with our “Ring-a-Drink”, spin the “Wheelie of Fun,” and test your bicycle know-how in “Bike Anatomy 101.”
