Iris and Brennen Bechtol have lived in Oak Cliff for some time now. They love the neighborhood, how bike friendly it is, and how BFOC always had great group rides for them to participate in. One thing though, they didn’t always feel comfortable taking their 8 year old daughter with them.
In the same vein that BFOC has been doing iBike Rosemont, they’re launching Kidical Mass Dallas. On the last Saturday of every month there will be a short, kid friendly group ride in various parts of Dallas. The idea is that it happens the Saturday after Dallas Critical Mass‘ Friday group ride, has a fun destination, and is very easy to do for all level of kid and adult riders.
