“The goal of the Santa Monica Safe Routes to School Program is to help families bicycle and walk to school by offering education and encouragement programs, and by improving walking and bicycling conditions near schools, according to the city’s website.  By joining forces with Kidical Mass, kids and parents can safely ease into navigating their bikes around the city.

In order to estimate the most accurate head count possible, riders are being asked to RSVP to [email protected] by April 17th.  Get more information on local Santa Monica events with Kidical Mass on their Facebook page HERE!
