Well, the weather is beginning to look fine and we’ve got so much light in the sky we don’t know what to do with it – I love Critical Mass at this time of year – people are a little more relaxed, the numbers swell, we have more fun!!!
Last month has been a busy one for cycle activists out there. Not only did many of us take to the streets to Pedal on Parliament but many have also been in preparation for the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling, which runs from the 11th to the 21st of June. One not to be missed is the World Naked Bike Ride in Edinburgh on the 13th June, which a number of us Critical Massers have been promoting.
These are very exciting times!!!
So why not join us for Critical Mass this Friday? First time riders, families, familiar faces – all are very welcome. We begin our ride as ever at 5.30pm on the Mound outside the Scottish National Gallery. There we chat, catch up, get to know one other…maybe paint our faces too…all very essential for building a fun-loving community! Then we set off at about 6pm to ride around Edinburgh in a peaceful yet assertive way – riding in a mass with good music and illustrating that we too are traffic and celebrating the beauty of one of humankind’s greatest sustainable inventions.
We pass through the Meadows at 7pm so join us then if 5.30/6pm is too early for you and we’ll then ride some more. Who knows where the road will take us and who knows what will happen – but riding in the mass we can be sure we will are visible, feel safe, and have great fun. Please share details of our ride and/or sign up to the event on facebook. See you there…
