Last year's Kidical Mass kick-off ride was a hoot, and I don't expect such a mind-blowing turnout this year, but hey, the weather is gorgeous, and I'd like to kick off the summer biking season in style. Spread the word!
We'll meet at the bell (Ballard Ave and 22nd) at 5:45pm, depart at 6pm, parade through the after-party, turn left past the library on 57th to use quiet streets most of the way to the bike trail at the Locks, and continue on a relatively short ride to "the secret beach" (opposite Paseo) for a seaside dinner picnic. Bring food or get delicious Paseo take-out, we'll have dessert.
Come early to enjoy the After-Party and street closure in Ballard - they kick-off at 4pm. And don't miss the Alki Summer Streets closure on Sunday, May 23.
As for June, I'm looking for some Team Seattle folks to travel down with us to Portland on June 12th for Pedalpalooza and Fiets of Parenthood PDX! Check out my previous post for more on this concept ... we'll be doing a Fiets of Parenthood Seattle later this summer. We'll also have a local KM ride in June, details TBA. For email updates on KM rides, please use our signup form.
UPDATE: Weather is a hmmm ... Rain cancels (but I'll be there), drizzle changes destination (Tacos Guaymas?), bring cash for Paseo if beach weather.
