We Bike For Our Kids!

Sunday, June 25 at 10AM!

For those who love to bike, for those who love kids, and for those who want climate action: You’re all invited to join us for a family-friendly group bike ride! 

We believe riding bikes is, first and foremost, fun! And it is an important part of climate action. But it can be intimidating for parents: how can I transport little kids, or big kids, where do I feel safe biking, how do I plan a route, what size bike does my kid need, does this helmet fit properly? That’s where meeting family bike friends can help! Come out and see a range of kid-toting bike options: child seats, trailers, long tails, bakfiets and ask any questions of the bike community


10:00 AM

Meet at Somerset St. W. and Queen Elizabeth Drive


Bike Ride Begins! We will ride on completely car-free routes so everyone feels welcome and safe. We will go along the Queen Elizabeth Drive section closed to cars.

11:00 (approximately)

Arrive at Patterson's Creek Park. Time to chat, visit the Bistro, have a cup of coffee, picnic and play! Bring your own blanket, snacks, and maybe some toys or games (there is no playground at the park). 

RAIN DATE (because rain happens!) is Sunday, July 2

You can register for this event below.

Registering is optional but it allows us to contact you in the event of any changes to the plan!

Join us throughout the spring, summer, and fall for more rides!

For Our Kids is a community of parents, grandparents and families who are concerned about climate change. We organize family-friendly activism and information activities and provide a space to connect and take action together. We strive to be a welcoming place for all parents, guardians, grandparents, caregivers, and community members to connect and act together.
