What is Kidical Mass??  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.  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. The rides also an opportunity to learn about equipment and resources to help make bicycling as a family safe and fun.  It’s also a great way to meet other families that enjoy bicycling..

If you are unable to make August’s ride, don’t worry.  Kidical Mass Gaithersburg rides are held on the Second Saturday of every month through November.  Rides take place at 10 am.

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.
