Kidical Mass is a group bike ride for tamariki and whānau from Queen's Wharf to Silo Park, ending in a BYO group picnic.

Gather next to the fancy new Bike Hub on Queen's Wharf before winding your way along the waterfront, taking in the sights and sounds of the sea as you go. When you and the group get to Silo Park you’ll park up and pull out the picnic blankets for a BYO picnic. At Silo Park there will be valet bike parking thanks to Bike Auckland, who will keep a keen eye on your ride while you picnic.

Following similar rides overseas, Kidical Mass is a fun morning designed to get families out and about in numbers and to promote riding a bike as a climate-positive transport choice amongst families and young people. Feel free to dress up - capes, colours, onesies, pyjamas, anything goes!

The morning goes like this:

  • 9:45am: Registration at Queen's Wharf, next to the new Bike Hub
  • 10:15am: Health and Safety Briefing
  • 10:30am: Group Ride Departs Queen's Wharf for Silo Park
  • 11:00am - 12:00pm: Group Picnic
  • 1:00pm: Bike Valet Closes

Kidical Mass is brought to you by Bike Auckland, Crank, Auckland Transport, Eke Panuku Development Auckland and Interesting Things, and is a part of the Auckland Climate Festival.
