Kidical HP100 - This Sunday, 12/17/17, 10:30-11am Mini-loops

The HP100 is an awesome, fun day-long festival ride around Hains Point to raise funds and awareness for WABA’s Women & Bicycles program. Now in its sixth year, the HP100 is getting kidical (again): We will have our own special roll out and mini-loop (WITH HANDUPS/STOP-AND-GRABS ON THE ROUTE!!!) 



This isn't a typical Kidical Mass ride -- there will be lots of other riders and we're just going to ride in a mini loop for about 30 minutes -- but it'll be a blast.  The fun continues all day, and you are welcome to ride the entire loop and do as much or as little as you'd like!

We'll start and ride near the tip of Hains Point, which conveniently has an awesome play structure and bathrooms. The Hains Point loop is a completely FLAT 3 mile loop, our mini-loop will be a completely flat 1/2 mile, with a bit of gravel. There are no hills. Plus, it’s got scenic views of the river, the harbor (LOTS OF BOATS) and the airport (PLANES). 


There is no registration fee for the ride, however riders are encouraged to donate to WABA's Women & Bikes.  There are lots of giveaways, raffles, donations and hand-ups the people have donated that will be part of the fun. So if you are participating in the festivities,riders are encouraged to sign-up on the HP100 site.  Details about the ride, sign-up and donate here: www.HainsPoint100.com

There is parking near the start/finish– please park cars along the side of the main street, and not in the start/finish section (there are plenty of spots on the sides).
 

And stick around afterwards to check out and chat about the many family-friendly rigs that will be out there. And don't forget, there are active Kidical Mass rides all over the Washington area - come meet some of their regulars!

There will be lots of give-aways and treats. Come! Bring friends! Donate to WABA!

When:  Sunday, December 17, 2017, meet 10:15am, roll out 10:30am, mini loops until 11am (though the fun will continue all day, and you’re welcome to come down any time)
Start/finish: Hains Point – the tip (the bike symbol on this map)
Parking: Along the sides of Hains Point
 

PS. Sunday morning weather is looking to be cold-ish. Don't forget to bundle up!
Happy Holidays!
