Gather your whānau and get ready for Kidical Mass!
About this Event

Kidical Mass is a group bike ride for tamariki and whānau from Queen's Wharf to Silo Park, ending in a BYO group picnic.

We’ll gather next to the fancy new Bike Hub on Queen's Wharf before winding our way along the waterfront, taking in the sights and sounds of the sea as we go. When we get to Silo Park we’ll park up and pull out the picnic blankets for a BYO picnic. At Silo Park there will be valet bike parking thanks to Bike Auckland, who will keep a keen eye on your ride while you picnic.

Following similar rides overseas, Kidical Mass is a fun morning designed to get families out and about in numbers and to promote riding a bike as a climate-positive transport choice amongst families and young people. Feel free to dress up - capes, colours, onesies, pajamas, anything goes!

The morning goes like this:

9:45am: Registration at Queen's Wharf, next to the new Bike Hub

10:15am: Health and Safety Briefing

10:30am: Group Ride Departs Queen's Wharf for Silo Park

11:00am - 12:00pm: Group Picnic
