Kidical Mass Philly: Ride to IKEA 2/15 & Women's Forum at NBS

Kidical Mass Philly is still moving along even in these cold and snowy days. Marni & I have worked on a general calendar of rides for the first quarter. Including our ride this Saturday from Race Street Pier to IKEA along the Delaware Waterfront (all the meatballs!!). If we do have bad mid-week snow or bad road conditions the ride will be cancelled. But let's hope for midweek rain and a sunny Saturday. Check FB and website for up to the minute updates. 

Some other stuff on our calendar includes family bike camping this year and riding to the honey festival this September at Bartram's Garden. If you have a great starting or ending location or program/shop/business that wants to work with KMPHL please feel free to contact us.

In one last bit of KMPHL news I will be speaking about our group in DC this March at The League of American Bicyclists annual advocacy and lobbying event The National Bike Summit and Women's Forum. I will be speaking at the forum with a group of really fantastic women who are leaders of various cycling organizations. (There are a number of women from Philly talking at the forum!!!!)This is only the second time family riding will even be discussed as a topic so great news to spread our love. Although I already wrote my pecha kucha style speech I'm still compiling pictures from our rides, if you have some you want to contribute send an email my way. 

PS if you will be at the summit I hope we get to meet!
