One of the main goals of DonkeyCross is to support local youth cycling. Since 2012, 100% of net revenue from the race goes to local youth cycling groups. Youth under 19 years have always ridden for free at Donkey Cross and that tradition continues.
A lot of care and thought is put into the Kids’ Races which includes free coaching and a special little kids’ course. Before the race, there’s behind the scenes work reaching out to local parents and community groups. Last year, almost half the kids were from the local area and didn’t have parents who cycle, which is pretty awesome.
