Kidical Mass global action weekend Sept 2022
On the weekend of 24 & 25 September 2022, the second Kidical Mass global action weekend of this year took place, initiated by the German organisation Kinder Aufs Rad (translated: children on bikes).
They certainly know how it's done, because in Cologne alone there were 2,000 people cycling on Sunday.
Kidical Mass is growing in the UK
1,300 people of all ages and abilities joined slow-paced group rides across the UK to call for safer streets.
Routes varied, with some taking in main roads through city centres, while others used traffic-free routes.
Children from as young as three years old were able to practise their riding skills and gain confidence.
