June 2016: Salishan Summer Ride
Kidical Mass Tacoma is a monthly bike ride for kids and their families. We ride at a comfortable pace for kids and stop to regroup as needed.
In June we'll be riding a 3.8-mile figure-eight route around Salishan and Swan Creek Park. The ride starts in the parking lot behind the Family Investment Center (E 44th and R St). The first half is very flat and passes by the future site of the Eastside Community Center. The second half of the route has a few hills and will showcase some of Swan Creek Park, including the community garden and access to the mountain bike trails. We will be riding in the street and following the Rules of the Road, but much of the ride is on paths separated from car traffic. The entire route is paved.
The ride starts at 11am, but plan to arrive early to pump up your tires, decorate your bike, and meet other family riders.
If you haven't ridden in Salishan or Swan Creek Park before, don't miss this ride! There are tons of pocket parks and playgrounds to explore afterwards. Bring a picnic lunch and we'll provide ice cream treats.
Helmets and adult supervision are required. Many thanks to the Tacoma Wheelmen's Bicycle Club for sponsoring these events!
