There is never too much of a good thing. There are too few of me to attend all the fun, wild, inspiring bike-centric events that are going on in the month of May.
Take tomorrow: AVAM’s (American Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore) Kinetic Sculpture Race takes place. Purists might say it’s not really a bike-centric event, but I would argue since the sculptures are human powered, with many based on bike frames, we’ve got ourselves a bikey event.

Then there’s the Tour De Cookie event in Rockville. This is a fun, family oriented event that combines cookies, bikes and a good cause. Rockville’s Tree House Child Asssessment Center of Montgomery County. Those folks help children and their families affected by abuse and neglect.

And of course, there’s Kidical Mass DC, the brainchild of Megan Odett. I met her before she became DC’s kidical kingpin, when she organized the very first event. Now, she’s telling folks her kid can “mop the floor” with your little ones in the balance bike races. How can you NOT rise to that challenge?
And all this in the very first week of National Bike Month!
