Kidical Mass Gaithersburg aims to support families in everyday use of bicycling. Based on successful efforts in other cities, including DC and Arlington locally, the aim is to have monthly rides that are social, casually paced and fun while supporting a local business. We also will raise awareness of the possibilities for safer bike routes in the community and guide folks to the easiest ways to navigate the community by bike. While the ride is geared toward families, anyone is welcome to join.
Rides will be held on the Second Saturday of the month. For the months of May, August, September and October, rides will take place at 10 am. For June and July, rides will take place at 6:30 pm.
July’s ride will be more shaded to offer an escape from the heat. The July 14th ride will begin at Market Square at 6:30 pm and proceed along Great Seneca Highway and Muddy Branch. The ride will end at Malcolm Park where children can have fun at the playground. Participants will have an opportunity to hear about a future trail link at Washingtonian North. The
