Two great “literary” events are happening in Wallingford this Sunday (March 24).
First up, Spokespeople will lead a Kidical Mass bicycle ride to several local Little Free Libraries from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. Then, they”ll head to Seattle Public Library’s “Sundays are Special” celebration at the Wallingford Branch (1501 N. 45th St.).
This is a perfect ride for children! Just three miles with minimal hills on Greenways and other slow family-friendly streets.
Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome! We’ll be joined by new Ride Leader in training and Family Ride blogger Madi Carlson. Please come by 12:45 p.m. if you are new to riding in groups or if you need help with adjusting your helmet or bike. All Spokespeople rides are on the road with traffic and include expert commuters who accompany us to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques for willing but wary cyclists. Please join us! **FAMILIES WELCOME**
Madi tells us that a few ride leaders will be stocking all the Little Free Libraries with extra kid books late the night before, “so don’t worry about nefarious activity if you see us.”
Not a bookish bicyclist? Then just come to the Wallingford Branch of Seattle Public Library (SPL) from 2:00pm to 3:30pm to celebrate Sundays at the library! From SPL:
