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. Rides will take place at 10 am. The May 9th ride will begin at Darnestown Road and Main Street at 10 am and ride on shared use paths in Lakelands and Kentlands to the park located near Lake Inspiration in Kentlands.
This season’s social rides will focus on the Gaithersburg Greenway. The Gaithersburg Greenway is a series of bicycle paths throughout the City of Gaithersburg that connect playgrounds, ball fields, ponds/lakes and other natural resources with our urban village centers. Each ride will focus on a specific neighborhood or connection. June’s ride will focus on the Washingtonian Woods neighborhood.
