Taking a cue from dasgeh, Rob O and I are going to start leading Kidical Mass Falls Church rides once a month. We'll make our best effort to stagger them with the Kidical Mass ARL rides so you can maximize your family biking fun time.

Here's our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/kidicalmassfc/

Please join and feel free to invite others if you think they may be interested! As with all Kidical rides, we welcome all body and bike types, as long as you support kids on bikes!

Our very first Kidical Mass (https://www.facebook.com/KidicalMass) ride! For those of you in town that want to join us for a short bike ride, we'll be starting at local bike shop Bikenetic - Full Service Bicycle Shop (https://www.facebook.com/bikenetic) and riding through the quiet streets of Falls Church ending up at Lincoln park where the kids can play. Here's the route!

First of many rides in FC. Can't wait! Could there be a better starting point? NOPE!

This is fantastic for Falls Church - I know a few bike-friendly families that I will notify! My kids are older and can handle longer rides on their own wheels, but we know a few families with a younger child that aren't really comfortable enough to go out on the trails (or very far) yet with everyone on their own bikes. This is a great opportunity to go out with a lot of support.

Our family is probably out because of the day/time; we've got other Sunday morning obligations. If you can plan some so that they aren't all on Sunday morning that would be great! (Same too with Arlington KM!)

I've just heard that Rockville is getting into the game too. KM DC, Arl, ALX, FC, Rockville, Gaithersburg (I think) and hopefully Reston. Not too shabby, I'd say. Though I'd love to see Bethesda, College Park, Takoma Park, Silver Spring and even Fairfax get in the game. Who's starting those?

Arlington is mixing up Saturdays and Sundays this year. Schedule here (http://kidicalmassarl.blogspot.com/).

Here's the site for Rockville (http://kidicalmassrockville.wordpress.com/). The rides won't work for us, because they are always on weekends, and we only ever have my granddaughter on weekdays. But I'm glad to see more bicycling stuff in Maryland generally. Believe me, I'm jealous of the amount of stuff that always seems to be going on in Virginia!

Sorry to bail you today, when we got the bikes loaded up onto the car we decided to ride along the Potomac instead. We road with the kids from Gravelly point, over the 14th street bridge, up to Lincoln, and over to Arlington National Cemetary instead. We had a nice picnic on West Potomac Park before riding back to the car.

No worries Mikey. We had 32 people turn out for the ride. Way bigger than I was expecting and great support from folks that wanted a ride like this in falls church. Pictures are on the Facebook page at Facebook.com/groups/kidicalmassfc
I'll post up again when our June ride details are ironed out.

we're going to do a quick Kidical Mass Falls Church ride for Father's Day. Coffee and Croissant in the morning then join Kidical Mass Arlington for ice cream in the evening!

We have to get all the 'burbs on board, and probably split the DC group into NW, NE and SE. I have to say, I'm surprised that Bethesda/Chevy Chase/Montgomery County and Takoma Park/College Park don't have their own. Once you have FFX and PG County in the mix, I believe we'll have won.

PS. I was called Kidical Mass-tress in an email. Can that be my forum subtitle? :-)

Two puns in one subtitle? I vote yes.

Puns? At least lacking small children I don't have to explain to anyone that I'm going to Mass at the Falls Church on Sunday. Oy.
