The Hains Point 100 gets Kidical: this SUNDAY, 12/21 10am

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 third year, the HP100 is getting kidical: We will keep track of miles ridden by families (and you get miles for each person on your bike – 1 kid = twice the miles!) and together we’ll look to hit the 100 mile mark! 

This isn't a typical Kidical Mass ride -- there will be lots of other riders -- but if you come for the roll out, we'll gather the family riders who would like to stick together and do a lap or two as a group. The fun continues all day, and any time you do a kidical loop will count for our kidical total!

The center of the action is 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. There are no hills. There are 3 stop signs. There are two lanes, most of the way has one way traffic.  And, 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 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, and to donate to WABA’s Women & Bikes.  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).

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

When:  Sunday, December 21, 2014, meet 9:30am, roll out and picture 10am (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 and possibly wet. Don't forget to bundle up!
Happy Holidays!
