The Kidical Mass ride on February 18th will be a triple header of sorts… an indoor activity at each end with a ride in the middle.
To kick things off we’ll meet up in North Portland for a coffee/tea social. After socializing we’ll ride bikes in a family sort of way to SCRAP and make bird feeders out of milk cartons (BYO carton). As a bonus we’ll have a bird expert on hand to tell us a little about the birds we might attract with our new feeders.
Coffee/tea social kicks off at 12 noon. We ride at 1:15.
This is a family friendly bike ride. We stay together and ride slowly enough for kids to ride on their own. We will be on the road, so kids should be able to follow verbal instructions, ride a straight line, and stop/start when necessary. Kids must wear helmets and be accompanied by their grown-ups. Bring a lock to secure your bike.
Bring some sort of milk jug, juice carton, or water bottle to make into a bird feeder at the SCRAP craft room. We’ll have an example or 2 on hand to demonstrate the general idea. Beyond that the only limiting factor is your skill with scissors and a hot glue gun.
This is a free event but people are encouraged to bring a couple dollars to buy bird feeder decorations from the eclectic collection of recycled craft materials in the SCRAP store. You’ll be amazed at the purchasing power of $3.
