Kidical Mass— Engaging Families in the Joys of Cycling While Being Safe.
Kidical Mass is a legal, safe and FUN bike ride for kids, kids at heart, and their families. The first ride was held in April 2008 in Eugene, Oregon and has now spread to over a dozen communities throughout North America and beyond. The rides are meant to be family friendly bike rides through a community. They generally meet at a park and end not too far away at another fun spot (park, ice cream shop, pool, or special event). Each community figures out the type of ride, routes, locations, and events that work best for their area families.
All types of bikes, trailers, trail-a-bikes, Xtracycles, longtails, bakfiets, Long Johns, tandems, folders, trikes, and whatever rolls are welcome! We celebrate the fact that Kids are Traffic Too and aim for family fun on vehicles that don’t hurt the future! It’s just another excuse to pedal around town with your family.
The founders of Triangle Bikeworks in the fall of 2011 partnered with The ReCYCLEry, the Carrboro Bike Coalition and the Town of Carrboro Recs and Parks to hold the first ever Kidical Mass in North Carolina. Since that first successful event we’ve held it each spring and each fall increasing the attendance at each.
We bring good kids to bikes!
