Join Kidical Mass Tacoma for our 4th Annual Cranksgiving family bike ride benefiting the St. Leo Food Connection food bank!

Meet-up at the 7 Seas Taproom entrance around 1:30 pm. We'll roll-out at 2 pm, pedaling a 1.7 mile route to the Stadium Thriftway grocery store for a chance to try our hand at family shopping by bicycle. We ask that riders purchase a few items to donate to St. Leo Food Connection. Be sure to bring along some way to haul your food items on your bike - backpack, basket, trailer, etc.

After we shop, we'll pedal back to 7 Seas Brewing to collect our items and celebrate our biking and shopping skills. Cash donations will also be collected at this time and are used to purchase fresh produce for the food bank.

FAQ: Do I have to shop at Stadium Thirftway? Nope. You are welcome to shop before the ride and bring items along if that's a better way to stretch your dollars (Costco and Cash'n'Carry have some good deals if you want to buy in bulk.) We've also marked other grocery stores on the map below if you'd like to take a more challenging ride while the kids pedal to Stadium.

**Special Note: This route is not very long, but it is uphill getting to the store and downhill getting back to the 7 Seas. We've picked a more gradual route up and down the hill, but no push bikes or training wheels please.

RSVP on Facebook or in the comments so we know you're planning to attend.

Many thanks to Tacoma Washington Bicycle Club and 7 Seas Brewing for helping with this event. Cheers!

Kidical Mass is a monthly family bike ride series. We ride in the street and follow the Rules of the Road. We ride together, stopping to regroup when needed. All children must be accompanied by an adult and all riders should wear a helmet.
