Kid stuff at Seattle Bike Show 2016

Our Kidical Mass ride from the Ballard Locks to the Seattle Bike Show was great! We were about 26 humans and 1 dog on 20 bikes.

New this year at the bike show was an obstacle course for little kids! Bikes and helmets were provided, no need to bring your own.

 And a climbing wall!

And the same fun stuff from last year, like the zip line and pump track for slightly bigger kids.

   

 
Our favorite booths were all there: Familybike Seattle (full disclosure: I’m on the board of directors) with lots of cargo bikes to look at, chocolates to eat, and family biking information to absorb; Bike Works with a wheel to spin (Bike Works also ran the bike valet parking out front); and Pedalheads bike camps. OutdoorsNW had a lot of giveaways, free copies of the annual NW Cyclist issue, and a photo booth; Amtrak had junior conductor activity books, and my kids tell me the massage chairs looked great, but the lines were too long.

Morgan Scherer, Executive Director of Familybike, and I spoke on the main stage about family biking and had a good turnout.

Find Familybike at booth 1520, in the southwest corner, near the terminus of the zip line, and conveniently close to the potties.

There’s surely a bunch of other fun stuff I didn’t see in my 10-minute dash up and down every aisle. My kids’ goodie bags are full of candy, one apple each, stickers, and pins. As always, quite the haul.
