Kidical Mass made its return to Portland in fine style on Saturday. The turnout was small (just a handful of families), but the group was fun and friendly. We met up under the colorful fall leaves of the South Park Blocks and mingled a bit before being corralled by ride organizer Katie Proctor.
Katie planned the ride to coincide with Thrill Around the World — a mass zombie-fest where hundreds of people don gruesome make-up and dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” We rode to the Pioneer Courthouse Square to check out the event and got good seats to watch the dancing.
After barely surviving our run-in with all the creepy zombies (they were everywhere!), we rode back to the Park Blocks for a post-ride treat.
It’s great to know that Kidical Mass in Portland now has a dedicated ride organizer and I’m confident it will grow in the coming months. Katie has fun plans (pie theme next month!) so stay tuned to find out when the ride comes to your neighborhood.
