I based our route on a combo of two routes one for runners, one for bicyclists. I knew a KM should really be under 5 miles since we go slower then molasses. That sadly eliminates the circle streets on the west side of Broad. Disappointing but as Marni said the kids have no idea they are missing anything.
Overall the route is fair, wide streets but no bike lanes. We will only need to deal with trolley tracks once on Passyunk. We eliminated biking down a street of lights because navigating trolley tracks in the dark stinks.
Our route and other FAQs are up at www.kidicalmassphl.org. We hope you will ride with us and warm up after the ride at DiBruno Brothers in the Italian Market.
On to some pics of Saturday:
We met Marni at Paine's Park. Where it was sunny but that didn't last the day was pretty gray and cold. Marni, had a shitty run in with some teenagers on Girard Ave around 10th. They harassed her and climbed into her bike. Not cool. If someone climbed into a car that would be a carjacking. :/
