London, England

Let’s all go to the Critical Mass bike ride on Friday 25th

Bring your bike and we will leave here a 5.30-6.00. Otherwise the ride mass leaves from South Bank under Waterloo Bridge, by the National Film Theatre in practice about 6.30 - 7.00.

It’s a massive laugh and well worth joining in. There is no route, but we go wherever the mood takes us. The police usually provide an escort and we don’t stop at lights. Usually a few hundred people turn up.

There is music too!

Oh yer, when we ‘go critical’ (have enough riders) we take over the roads.

Don’t have a bike?

I am sure we can take care of that.

When and Where?
The London Mass meets at 6.00pm on the last Friday of every month on the South Bank under Waterloo Bridge, by the National Film Theatre.

Next ride April 25th 2008. 14th Anniversary

Critical Mass: Who are we and what are our aims?
We are not sure, opinions seem to differ. There are probably as many aims of CM as there are participants. Each individual comes there with his or her own idea of what it’s about, and the sum of this makes up the Mass. We have no organisers and no planned routes.

Feeling hard core...
World Naked Bike ride. 14 June 2008. The ride is easy and upbeat, and riders decorate their bodies and bikes with messages of protest against oil dependency and car culture. The 3pm assembly time and traditional city centre route are again planned. Website.
