After taking a few years off due to the pandemic, Kidical Mass is back. The celebration of family biking will host its first event of the 2020s Sunday as part of the first Bicycle Weekend on Lake Washington Blvd. Meet 10 a.m. in the Mount Baker Beach parking lot for a 3-mile ride down the car-free boulevard to Seward Park for a picnic and some playground time.
Seattle has gained a lot of new parents in since 2019, and I am very excited for them to discover Kidical Mass. It’s a very short, very slow and very patient group ride that welcomes people biking with kids on their bikes as well as biking with kids who are learning to ride. The ride also makes stops for playtime and snacks, making it a great opportunity to meet other biking families or get family biking advice.
Anyone who is not yet set up for family biking but is interested in learning more should also swing by the picnic. Familybike Seattle, the host of Kidical Mass, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help more families bike. They can share all kinds of resources and advice. They are also very nice.
