Update: Kidical Mass George Washington Parade on 2/16

UPDATE: Parade cancelled.

Listen, George Washington was the father of our country. As such, he'd probably be all about kidically massing, had the bicycle been around when he was. But it wasn't and he probably had to settle for Kidical Ass, wherein families ride donkeys together. Anyway, don't be a donkey and show up with your kids, your bikes, and your kids on bikes this Monday and ride in the Old Town Alexandria George Washington Birthday Parade in honor of George Washington's birthday and because biking is fun. And they're gathering for tacos at the end and you would have to be crazy not to want to eat tacos, which were probably George Washington's favorite food. 

It's time for Kidical Mass to strut our stuff, and throw out some sweets along the way! In honor of George Washington's Birthday, Kidical Mass Arlington is teaming up with Kidical Mass Alexandria to roll in the George Washington Parade in Old Town. As a bonus, we've been invited to grab a bite after the parade with the wonderful cyclists of Alexandria (the BPAC, Spokeswomen and KM ALX).

When: Monday, February 16, 2015 PARADE starts at 1 pm

Meet: You get two options:

- meet KM Arlington folks at the intersection of the Four Mile Run and Mount Vernon Trails at NOON

- meet the whole group in Old Town on Gibbon St middle of the block East of Pitt Street at 12:30pm; we are the last float in Division 2

Parking: I would recommend parking in Arlington (because I don't know anything about parking in Old Town). You can park for free in Crystal City, then ride down the Mt Vernon Trail or park on Eads Street and ride down the Four Mile Run Trail. Either will bring you to the Arlington meetup point.

End: District Taco in Old Town


The organizers would like help getting a head count. If you can, please sign-up on their meet-up page.

Note: The route will be very flat (once we leave Arlington), but longer than normal, if you're riding from Arlington and back. Please check the weather -- it looks like it will be clear but VERY cold, and we'll be outside for a LONG time.
