1st Monthly Kidical Mass Ride Set for 9/28/13

Kidical Mass is a legal, safe and FUN bike ride for kids, kids at heart, and their families. Join Bike Lafayette for Acadiana's 1st Kidical Mass, to be repeated each last Saturday of the month beginning in September 2013.

Our purpose is to teach kids, parents and caregivers safety skills and provide a ride in which to practice them. We are creating awareness for the growing presence of kids and families on bikes and the need for all road users to respect other users of the road.

We want our rides to be comfortable for families just starting out and biking on city streets for the first time but we don’t shy away from traffic just because kids will be riding. There is comfort in numbers, not just on a group ride like this but also in the day to day world of riding in the city. This ride is meant to help families feel that comfort by having a group to ride with and hopefully they will incorporate it into their daily transportation choice.

Bring a smile, a friend, your bike and another family. All types of bikes, trailers, trail-a-bikes, tandems, trikes, and whatever rolls are welcome! Helmets are heavily encouraged and legally required for kids under 12 in Louisiana.

The event is free and open to the public.
