    As the hot weather in the city finally breaks towards crisp fall and the kids are settling in back to school have you started to think about more family bike — whether for transport or leisure?


    Join Kidical Mass Philadelphia’s  at the ABCs of Family Biking on Sept. 21. Kidical Mass Philadelphia prides itself on helping the city’s tiniest cyclists take back the streets with monthly family-friendly slow-paced rides.

    On Sunday, they will be parking their bikes for an afternoon of test rides and fun.

Options will include balance bikes, kid bike seats, cargo bikes and more. Parents who already ride with their children will bring their own bicycles to display and answer any questions you may have.
