It’s the second annual Kidical Massive ride!! Join us as THOUSANDS of families around the country go for a bike ride together. We’ll be showing that “Kids are Traffic Too” and that cities that plan for family biking are more livable, sustainable, profitable, and FUN!

Husky Grind at Mercer Court (3925 Adams Ln NE, Seattle, WA 98105)
1) Bakery and bike decorating, 2) Ice cream and bike rodeo, 3) Work an alleycat checkpoint!
Our ride will start in the plaza next to Husky Grind at Mercer Court, alongside the Burke-Gilman Trail (just east of the Wall of Death/University Bridge) and ride five miles total: four along the Burke-Gilman Trail (no more detail through UW if you haven’t been there for a while!) and then down Seattle’s first protected bike lane to enter Magnuson Park, home to Cascade Bicycle Club (7787 62nd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115). Cascade is hosting an Unveiling Party for their new Traffic Garden, Fix-it Garage and Ride Leader Welcome Pavilion. Here’s the Facebook event for that.
There will be bike and balance bikes available to ride in the bike rodeo for kids who don’t come with their own wheels!
Ice cream! Including vegan options!
The event runs from 1pm to 3pm so we’ll aim to arrive at 1, but as always will travel the speed of our slowest pedaler and all stick together.
Once the event at Cascade wraps up those of us who still have the biking bug will head to an undisclosed location to help run a checkpoint for an alleycat bike race to make our Kidical Mass truly MASSIVE! More details on that closer to the big event.
