KIDS ENTER ON THE DAY!
Yes, the Kow Kids Race is more important than the one Mum or Dad are doing. Just bring your bike, helmet and your fanciest Kow horns (or cycle pants) and we'll let you loose on a specially designed 'kids-only' track.
While kids can register on the day, we do need to get a handle on numbers. If your little ankle biker wants to ride in the Kow Kids Race – Let us know HERE

TRASH INTO TROPHIES DAY
The annual Kowalski Trash into Trophies Day was held on Saturday. Kowalski's James, Dave, Chris and I spent the day transforming boxes of formerly high-end cycle porn in to objects of competitive art. Some were easy to realise while others took ages to perfect. Arrange a few together and we've almost got a whole bike again.
