Pedaling off for 2014…

Last Friday saw Critical Mass Edinburgh pedal off for what is set to be an exciting-biking 2014 and what a beautiful first ride of the year we had.

I managed to arrive just after 5.30pm at the Mound outside the Scottish National Gallery and it was great to see people already there including several new faces – we were going to be in for a nice ride. Just after 6pm there were nearly 20 cyclists and this even included a family with a young lad out on his new bike.

After a few words about the ride and to ensure everyone would feel safe and comfortable throughout we cranked up our sound-system and headed for the streets. And wow, for me, this was easily the best atmosphere since I started riding with Critical Mass Edinburgh last year – we were having a party.

We pedaled all over the city [route we took] and below are just a few pictures from the ride. It’s dark but hopefully you can get an idea of what the ride was like. For those who have not come before – we do this on the last Friday of each month (next one will be on the 28th February) – and we really are working hard at making Critical Mass bigger and more friendly in Edinburgh. Come and see for yourself.
