Kids having a bike race

In ancient Central Asia, people loved to ride horses and often raced their horses for fun. You probably don’t have horses you can race (though that would be a great activity if you do!) but you might be able to race bicycles instead. Can you organize a bicycle race activity? Can you hit a target with a ball while riding your bike?

You don’t need to be very organized, with numbers and timers – you can just get a group of kids together with their bikes and race down your block, or across a big parking lot near your houses. Or, if this bike race is part of a “day in Central Asia” event, you could race your bikes across a field.
