Kidical Mass is Coming to Town!

Baby, it’s cold outside… and wet, and dark so very early. Brighten up your holiday mood by joining Kidical Mass for a ride (whatever the weather) in NoPo this month! We’ll sing carols (Christmas, bikey, and otherwise) for the holiday shoppers on North Mississippi, and then stop in to Grand Central Baking for some hot drinks and a cookie or three before heading home– note the earlier time, to help us all get home before dark!

Meet at Saturday, Dec 18 at 1:45 under the covered basketball courts in Irving Park– we’ll leave at 2 and plan to be back by 4. Ride is a 2.5 mile loop. Please be sure to bring lights (just in case!) and extra warm layers, so that you and your little ones can enjoy every bikey minute!

Tour de Pie

When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, some look forward to the roasty, crisp skin of their holiday bird. For some, it is savory, steaming stuffing that gets them to the table. For us here at Kidical Mass, it’s all about the pie.

The ride will be under 3 miles, and will be a loop. Meet in Ladd’s Circle Park at 2:45, roll at 3. We ride rain or shine.

And speaking of pie, isn’t it interesting how many delicious ways there are to combine yummy ingredients with pastry and come up with something amazing– some sort of “pie”?

This line of thinking led us to invent the Kidical Mass Tour de Pie, a rolling exploration of pie establishments in close-in SE Portland.  Stops are not yet finalized, but will likely include pizza pie, fried pie, and of course the traditional baked-in-a-flaky-crust pumpkin pie.

The ride will be under 3 miles, and will be a loop.  Meet in Ladd’s Circle Park at 2:45, roll at 3.  We ride rain or shine.
