Kidical Mass 2015 Kick-Off Ride and Parade!


Once again we’re kicking off the Kidical Mass PDX season with a parade.

It’s not really our parade, but we’ll be riding in it. St. Agatha’s School (in Sellwood) has once again invited us to ride in their St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 14th, and we hope you will ride with us!

Join us for bike decorating at the Sellwood Park Playground (SE 7th& Lexington) between 10:30 and 11:30 (on 3/14). We’ll have some decorations to share, but if you have ribbons, crepe paper, flowers, or anything else GREEN please bring it along. Snacks for sharing are also welcome. Costumes are great too!

We’ll ride over to SE 15th & Miller to line up for the parade around 11:30. The parade starts at noon and lasts about an hour.

After the parade, stick around for the festival: food, carnival games, live music, Irish dancers, and a beer garden, until 5pm. More info on the St. Agatha School festival here: http://www.stagathaschoolpdx.us/#!st-patricks-day/cseh

We ride at a kid-friendly pace. We’ll do our best to stay together as a group but the parade route can get crowded. Riders should be able to ride in a line, follow verbal directions, and stop. Kids under 18 must be wearing helmets.

Bring a smile, a friend, and join us behind the Kidical Mass PDX banner for some parade fun!!

ThrilleRide IV: Dance Like You’re Undead


It’s back! Once again, Kidical Mass will celebrate the spooky season with a costumed ride to the annual Thrill the World PDX mass zombie dance performance.

We will meet at the new Dawson Park on October 25 at 1:45 and depart at 2 for a meandering loop around the neighborhood, ending at Irving Park to watch the dancers at 3. Been practicing your moves? Get your zombie makeup on and join in!

This ride is NOT a loop, but will likely conclude with drinks and snacks at Hopworks Bike Bar.

Kids must wear helmets. Bring lights in case you wind up out late. Bring treats to share if you’d like. And wear your Halloween costume.

RSVP at the Facebook event here, or just show up!
