So there’s, like, a football game Sunday afternoon? If you’re looking to clear out of your house, too, join us at Green Lake (meet at the shade plaza next to the Community Center–7201 E Green Lake Dr N, Seattle, WA, 98115) at 1pm for a

of Energetic


My five-year-old will lead a kiddie and adult bike parade. The route is a secret (I think this means he’ll decide where to go when the time comes), but it will probably meander around the shade garden and playground. Possibly a little SLOW action on the bike path. Then we’ll pan for gold at East Beach like 49ERS and scan the trees for RAVENS. [Get it? I just Googled to see which teams were playing in the other Super Bowl.]

Kidical Mass massing up

If it’s cold or wet–or cold and wet–we can head across the street and take advantage of the new Sunday hours at the Green Lake library–it’s open 1-5.

Other nice and nearby kid-friendly indoor places are Cafe Bonjour (open 9-4), Mockingbird Books (open 12-5), and possibly Gregg’s Cycles (open 10-6).

Join the Seattle Family Biking Facebook group and RSVP so I know how much gold to bury at the beach.
