August 2022 ride in Wokingham

Wokingham’s first Kidical Mass was held on Saturday 13th August. The ride took in a mile and a half around some of the town centre’s streets, and young and old enjoyed the spirit of riding together and chatting along the way. At the end, ice lollies and cycling games were enjoyed by all in Elms Field.

We are delighted with how the ride went. Kidical Mass is about fun and freedom for kids and families on bikes, but with a serious message about how safe our streets are at other times. The few drivers we met along the way were wonderful, giving plenty of room for everyone and enjoying the spectacle of kids riding freely on the roads accompanied by the wonderful Earley Panda 🐼.

Local support for the event has been tremendous, with so many people who weren’t able to make Saturday due to holidays or the heat asking when we’ll be back.

Our next ride is on Sunday 25th September, with a ride from Woodley to Palmer Park to meet up with Reading Kidical Mass as a part of the global Kidical Mass event. We’re planning to be back in Wokingham town in October.
