September 19: MASSIVE International Bike Ride

The international family biking movement is uniting on a single day to celebrate the joy of biking with children, and the DC area is leading the pack! 

On Saturday, September 19th, Kidical Mass groups from Hungary to California are hosting rides to demonstrate that biking with kids is easy, safe, healthy and FUN. With seven groups in the area, the Greater Washington region boasts the highest concentration of Kidical Mass groups in the world, and every one of them will be joining Kidical MASSIVE.

Kidical Mass DC will take an easy ride from Stanton Park on Capitol Hill through the National Mall and down to the Washington Monument, where we will meet our sister rides Kidical Mass Arlington, Kidical Mass Alexandria, and Kidical Mass Falls Church for a pizza party!

Details below:

When: Saturday, September 19, 10:00am (roll out 10:15am)

Meet: Stanton Park on Capitol Hill (4th Street side). I will be biking in from Brookland via the Metropolitan Branch Trail, so e-mail me if you're interested in riding together from points north.

Distance: 2 miles (one way)

Difficulty: easy! We will ride with traffic until we get to the National Mall, then we'll switch to a path on the Mall
