Family Biking

Family biking is the future of biking. We’re working to support families with new programs, new ideas, and new approaches to local bike advocacy. Read on for great local rides, educational opportunities and ways that you can get involved.

Family Rides:

Do you ride bikes with your kids? Do you wish you could? Several grassroots Kidical Mass groups organize rides around the region. These groups organize legal, safe and fun bike rides for kids, kids at heart, and their families. These family-friendly bike rides usually go through a community, and generally meet at a park and end not too far away at another fun spot ( i.e. ice cream shop, pool, or special event). Most groups ride about once a month. Check their websites for upcoming rides: Kidical Mass DC (twitter) Kidical Mass Arlington (facebook, twitter) Kidical Mass Alexandria (twitter) Kidical Mass Rockville Kidical Mass Gaithersburg (Facebook) Plus, check out a list of Kid Friendly WABA events at here.
