The Chicago Kidical Mass rides are growing fast and are a lot of fun.
The rides have been similar in size to the neighborhood mass rides, ie
50+ people.  Please tell your cycling friends with kids about these
rides.  And if you don't have kids come join us anyway.  It's a good
time and we can always use the help of experienced cyclists with corking

Todd and Jamie, good to see you today. See you at the next few Kidical mass rides!
Great Ride Today! I was SOOOO impressed that the ride wasn't canceled due to the rain and everyone's general attitude about the weather. Some of the kids were even playing in the park during the preride downpour. Makes us adults who cancel rides due to the weather look so wimpy. ha!

My camera battery died before the ride actually started but here are a couple!

Thanks everyone, for a great ride! (And for your patience with the littlest rider)

Here are some photos, and one short video clip: June 12 Kidical Mass
