KENOVA — You can enjoy a leisurely ride, skateboard or roller skate through the small town of Kenova, as the Kenova Critical Mass ride meets up at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30 at the Kenova Town Square gazebo by Save-A-Lot grocery for take an easy paced six mile ride around the city. Everybody is welcome no matter what age.

Organized by Mandy Jordan, a 32-year-old bicyclist and life-long resident of Kenova, the Kenova Critical Mass takes place on the last Friday of every month and is a flat six-mile loop around Kenova on the city’s bike path that rolls through such neighborhood streets as Chestnut and Beech Street (where it rolls by Kenova mayor Ric Griffith’s historic home that is transformed each October into the famous Pumpkin House).

The Critical Mass monthly bicycle events began in San Francisco in 1992 and have since spread around the world.

 Critical Mass is an idea and an event and not an organization. It merely is a celebration of bicycle riding and asserting cyclists right to the road without being rude about it.  Huntington’s monthly Critical Mass ride is set for 6:30 p.m. every third Friday of the month.
