The first Chicago Kidical Mass ride will be held Saturday March 20 in Palmer Square in the Logan Square neighborhood. Riders will gather at 9 a.m. for a 9:30 a.m. departure and may ride until 10:30 a.m. The ride will start and end at “the bunny park” playground in Palmer square. The park is in the middle of Palmer Boulevard between Kedzie & Humbolt Boulevards. Future rides are proposed for each 3rd Saturday of the month.
The Kidical Mass movement was started in Eugene, Oregon in 2008 as a way to promote family friendly bike transit for beginning riders and experienced bike riders. Since then, similar events have been held throughout the Northwest, Canada and in Europe.
