Our last ride for August was a blast! As part of the Safe Routes To School Conference, we attracted more adults than Kidicals this time, however, it was great to see some little locals (and their bigguns) joining the conference participants. We were also lucky enough to have Shane MacRhodes, the original co-founder of Kidical Mass and a Eugene Safe Routes To School coordinator. He had some great suggestions and ideas for fun rides. We ended the ride with a visit from POPcycle for yummy treats after a warm ride.
One big change that we're pleased to announce: Sacramento Kidical Mass is now going to be each fourth Saturday of the month! This gives everyone a regular schedule to put on their calendars. Come as often as you can! Our goal is to get as many families out riding safely and legally while having a ton of fun!
If you have any ideas or routes that you'd like to see happen, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure save the date for these upcoming Kidical Mass rides! More details will be divulged as the ride date approaches. (There is always the possibility that rides/times may change due to weather or scheduling conflicts)
