Kidical Mass PDX
Kidical Mass rides March through October all over the city, very slowly, and only a few miles at a time. Their goal is to get more kids and families excited about riding. They have a great Facebook page, which you can connect with here.
Pedalpalooza Family-Friendly Rides

The organization, SHIFT, coordinates a calendar online where ride leaders can designate which rides are family friendly and encourage bringing kids. Past rides have included farm tours, Star Wars/Star Trek costume themes, and pinata scavenger hunts.
