About Kids Racing: the Children's Triathlon & Cycling shop
Kids Racing: the Children's Triathlon & Cycling shop.
We are the UK’s first and only Swim, Bike, Run & Children’s Triathlon specialist, based near Milton Keynes, Bedford and Northampton, we stock kids clothing, bikes, shoes, wetsuits, trisuits and kids performance sports gear for your children’s triathlon, running races, swimming events and cycling race.
If kids get into sport early, they can develop a life-long passion for fitness, but as a Mum of 3 active boys, I found sourcing kit difficult (if not impossible), most bike/sports shops only have a small selection of child specific products.
My aim is to supply a full range of best kids products, for parents who want their kids to get the most from their sport.
But I still wasn't entirely happy with the best that was currently available, so 18 months after opening, I launched my own range of Cycling and Triathlon clothes and kit just for kids: HUPcc based around high-quality Italian made cycling clothing, unique bike components and Triathlon kit. If you want something doing right, do it yourself...

Linette: a love of Mountain Biking 25 years ago was lost to a career and childbirth. Once the kids were old enough and had taken up racing, Linette decided she can’t ask them to do anything that she wouldn’t do herself, so took the plunge and started Triathlon, Cyclocross racing, Road racing and Criterium racing. Inspired by her boys successes, she managed to qualify for the 2015 Road Race World Championships in Denmark! Best event? My 1st Olympic distance Triathlon – sick in the lake, total exhaustion – but finished!
Pat: dad and Cytech2 qualified bike mechanic, studying Engineering at De Montfort University. Bit of a bike geek, he loves his road bike, Cyclocross racing, Time Trials and MTB in the woods. Enjoys Sportives and Duathlon too. Best event? 21 hairpins of Alpe D’Huez, a magic 2hrs 15mins with my 7-year old, then doing it again the following year with his 6-year old brother!
Connor: our chief tester loves his Swim, Bike, Run! He regulary trains with TeamMK and competes in Road, TT, MTB and Cyclocross races around the region. He managed to win his first Duathlon and narrowly missed out on winning his first Triathlon by 15 seconds! His favourite ride is a 40km Sunday Social with his Dad. Best event? Winning my first Duathlon in a 50mph headwind or maybe the Alpe D’Huez kids Triathlon!
Fraser: pedalling without stabilisers since he was 2, at 4 he had won his local GoRide U6 Road, TT, MTB and CX championships with a crazy cadence. Loves to climb, hates the flat, he cycled Cheddar Gorge at 4 and Alpe D’Huez at 6-years old! Awarded the 2015 MK Citizen Young Achiever award for his 110 mile Mini ‘Ride For Willen’ raising £3000 for Willen Hospice. Best event? Wargrain MTB Downhill run (accessed by cable car) in Austria.
Cameron: tiny Cameron was a regular sight at races on his drop-handle barred balance bike, but now he’s pedalling and working hard to catch his brothers up! A medal for his first GoRide Cyclocross race was the highlight of his year! Best event? Completed the Assen European Youth Tour and won the Lantern Rouge and loved every minute of it!
