The highlight of the last quarter for Kidical Mass Reading and Kìdical Mass Wokingham was the joint September ride. This tied in with the Reading Cycle Festival and a Europewide Action Weekend for Kidical Mass.
Swinging over Christchurch bridge to arrive at the Reading Cycle Festival as a 65 strong group was a great deal of fun, and we were greeted very enthusiastically by festival goers.
At the festival we shared a stand with WATCH Wokingham. Adrian brought everything needed for the stall in his trailer on the ride (who needs cars?)!
We met in person some of the lovely people behind other local cycling groups – watch this space for some exciting collaborations regarding post ride activities on future rides!
Throughout the monthly rides, our wonderful marshals have kept us safe, pedestrians have pointed and taken pictures, and drivers have given us lots of smiles! The kids, of course, are always brilliant.
Fernanda, who rode with us with her four-year-old twins for the first time on our October ride, said, “We loved it! The kids had a great time and felt very grown-up riding ‘on their own’.”
Rides up to January are scheduled for the second Saturday of the month in either Wokingham or Reading. Everyone is welcome! If you are coming without children and willing to consider marshalling, please contact us for further details.
