Kidical Mass is For the Birds!: Ice Cream and Oaks Bottom Ride

If you’re a kid, September means back-to-school. But if you’re a bird, it means fall migration. Take a break from hitting the books and join Kidical Mass on September 17th on a ride for the birds—and for some ice cream! We’ll start at 3 pm at Oaks Pioneer Church (SE 5th & Spokane), and first head north to Staccato Gelato for some icy treats. Then we’ll roll back down to the Springwater Trail, which we’ll take up to the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge to take a peak at the birds passing through Portland on their way south. The ride will finish with our bird walk, but the starting point is just half a mile back down the trail. If you like, bring binoculars, scopes, and/or birding guides—or just bring your sharp eyes and curiosity! Kids must wear helmets, raincoats are a good idea this time of year (just in case!), and you should have a couple of bucks for ice cream. We ride slowly, but kids should be able to stay on the right side of the road, stop at stop signs, and follow verbal instructions. Rain or shine!
