Kidical Mass is a legal, safe and fun bike ride for kids, kids at heart and their families. The first ride was held in April 2008 in Eugene, Ore., and has now spread to more than two dozen communities throughout North America and beyond.
The rides are meant to be family-friendly bike rides through a community, which generally meet at a park and end near another fun spot (park, ice cream shop, pool, or special event). Each community figures out the type of ride, routes, locations and events that work best for their area families.
There are currently 27 cities in the United States and Canada hosting Kidical Mass including Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, San Diego and Denver.
Past Huntington Kidical Mass rides have included: a geocache-themed ride, a Harris Riverfront Park, where riders toured the Nina and Pinta replica ships docked at the riverfront, a Christmas lights bicycle ride, as well as rides through Highlawn, the Southside and Ritter Park.
