So, I ended up with an under-the weather little guy on Sunday and couldn't make it out to ride. I don't think anybody showed up, but given my total non-publicity of the ride, that was a pretty likely outcome.
I've been thinking a bunch about how to make Kidical Mass happen. I think it's a great idea whose time has come in Burlington. I think it's such a great idea that I can't believe it isn't already happening in some big way here, but I'm willing to keep the blog and social media accounts going as long as I am able to get it off the ground. I am also happy to give others who are interested the ability to post to the blog or social media accounts, so let me know if that's of interest.
In the meantime, let's call it this way:
Burlington, Vermont Kidical Mass
Informal group bicycle rides with kids. Get together for an all-ages group bicycle ride in Burlington! The speed will be slow and friendly. Meets the first Sunday of every month at Maglianero on Maple Street and rolls out by 11:00. The route and duration of the ride will be decided by the consensus of the group.

Short and sweet. I'm going to send out a request that folks post this copy on their local Front Porch Forums and anywhere else they can think of.
See you out there,
