Kidical Mass PDX CycloFemme Ride
May 12, 2019 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
May 12, we ride–worldwide.
The exponential reach of CycloFemme begins with each of us. We all play a role in growing our community by inviting one more to ride. We know the power of the bicycle to change lives.
CycloFemme’s annual Mother’s Day ride unites riders, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or bicycle preference to share in the joy of cycling. Year round, our global community inspires and empowers other women, by making their passion public and the joy in cycling contagious. Ride with us as we Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present, Empower the Future of Women in Cycling.
Kidical Mass PDX celebrates Mother’s Day and CycloFemme 2019 with a park-to-park ride of 2.5 flat miles with some fun stuff along the way.
We’ll start at Sewallcrest Park and end at Colonel Summers Park, providing a week-in-advance park preview of Southeast Portland Sunday Parkways 2019! Note: we won’t be riding the Sunday Parkways route (here’s the Parkways map: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/article/712451 ); see our route here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29745650
SNACKS! No bike ride or Mother’s Day is complete without snacks!
We’ll bring some snacks to share, and bringing your lunch is encouraged so we can have a picnic together at Colonel Summers Park at the end of our ride. If you want to grab lunch while you’re out, we’ll be very close to two food truck pods, Cartopia (1200 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR) and Hawthorne Asylum Food Carts (1080 SE Madison St, Portland, OR) which are both kid- and bike-friendly for eating at or grabbing food to go to bring back to the park.
Helmets are required for those under 18, and recommended for all. We’ll ride together as a group because kids are traffic, too!
