Napa Bike is pleased to announce another two Kidical Mass events. The first one is in Napa in the Westpark School neighborhood on April 28 and will be coordinated with other family-friendly events at Copia that day. The second one is in American Canyon on May 19 and will include a tour of the beautiful wetlands on the western edge of town.
Kidical Mass originated in Eugene Oregon in 2008. The goal was simply a matter of wanting to get more kids and families excited about riding. It is a family friendly, law-abiding ride. The purpose is to teach kids, parents and caregivers safety skills and provide a ride in which to practice them. The program creates awareness of the growing presence of kids and families on bikes and the need for all road users to respect other users of the road. An added bonus is that it brings together families who bike in a positive community experience and shows children how much fun riding a bike can be!
The program has spread to many communities around the country and now, thanks to a sponsorship from the Napa Valley Clean Air Coalition, and with the help of folks from the Napa County Office of Education's Safe Routes to School program, we are able to stage two of these special events for children and their parents this year. We're excited. Here's another opportunity to volunteer . . . just send us an email and we'll get you involved.
