Families and bikes gather outside Cafe Viaduct. A popular event supported by Bike Worcester will see families get together to pedal, picnic and play tomorrow (June 4).
The Kidical Mass event on Sunday 4 June, organised by Rob and Kate Collier, welcomes all ages and abilities.
The short mass cycle will follow a route along main roads and residential side streets and end at Gheluvelt Park.
The route is designed so that children of all ages, can cycle, wheel or scoot safely – even on a balance bike, with stabilisers, or sitting in a child seat or trailer.
The meeting point is on the grass area outside Cafe Viaduct, opposite the Hive, ready for a 12pm start.
There will be a briefing and marshals’ helping on the junctions, with lots of space given for small people to build confidence on their bikes.
