This is a guest post by Megan Odett, the Alliance for Biking and Walking’s member services coordinator and the organizer of Kidical Mass DC.
On Sat., Sept. 28, over 40 kids and adults met in Stanton Park on Capitol Hill to undertake a leisurely ride to Georgetown Waterfront Park and enjoy cupcakes from Sprinkles Bakery.
Girls led the charge all the way: Ladies from ages 6 to 30 honed their traffic-riding skills and set new personal records for distance. Randall Myers, a member of WABA’s board and the DC Bicycle Advisory Council, accompanied the ride—remarking that it was an eye-opening illustration of the challenges of biking with kids in the city.
After the ride, the crew consumed a heroic number of cupcakes from Kidical Mass DC organizer Megan Odett’s kid-hauling cargo bike, temporarily converted to a cupcake delivery vehicle. A fabulous time was had by all.
There’s one more Kidical Mass ride this year: The Cider and Sliders ride on Oct. 26. For more information, see this page.
