Family Bike Ride with Kidical Mass Tacoma
Roll-out at 10:30am, Saturday Oct 13, 2018
IDEA High School, 6701 Park Ave S, Tacoma
October is Tacoma Arts Month...let's ride bikes and make art!
We've asked the students of the 2nd Cycle shop at IDEA High School to plan a route in the South End and to help us with a print-your-own art activity after the ride.
The ride will start from the 2nd Cycle shop at IDEA High School (6701 S Park Ave, Tacoma, WA 98408). The shop is in a portable behind the school; look for the Kidical Mass banner on the fence along Park Ave and enter up the sidewalk ramp.
We will roll-out at 10:30 am on a 3-4 mile ride. As always, we will ride in the street following the Rules of the Road, stopping to regroup as needed so no one is left behind. Helmets and adult supervision are required. We will be riding at a kid's pace, but this route has some rolling hills and arterial crossings, so no push bikes or training wheels, please.
We'll return to IDEA for a print-your-own screen printing activity. Bring something to print on: a shirt, hoodie, canvas shopping bag, anything that's been pre-washed. There will be a few bike+neighborhood designs to choose from with inks that will look good on light or dark colored fabric. Paper for poster making will also be available.
It's getting chilly and damp so dress for the weather - we will ride in a sprinkle! However, if it's a total downpour we'll skip the ride and there will still be screen printing and treats inside the shop until 12:30pm.
We'll post a route map and more print design details soon!
