Join us this Saturday, June 14, for the launch of Kidical Mass Rockville! We’ll be meeting at the Thomas Farm Community Center (700 Fallsgrove Dr, Rockville) at 10 AM right near the bike rack. We’ll be riding to local favorite Carmen’s Italian Ice and back. We may also stop at the park across the street from Carmen’s if there is interest. The route is 1.5 miles each way and will use multi-use paths, quiet residential streets and a short distance on a bike lane. We welcome families with kids in trailers, bike seats, box-bikes, tag-a-longs and on their own two wheels! The pace will be at the speed of the slowest rider (probably about 6 mph), so don’t worry about being left behind.
We hope to make this a great launch, so please come and bring your kids and friends! Also, congratulations to our Virginia neighbors and their successful launch of Falls Church Kidical Mass, which had more than 30 people show up to their inaugural ride.
With so many family biking events – six different Kidical Mass series in the D.C. area alone! – we are really showing that it is possible to make our cities bike and kid friendly.
