Critical Mass – Cape Town

CRITICAL MASS is a cycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world.  The ride was originally started in 1992 in San Francisco with the idea to showcase how unfriendly the city was to cyclists.  The ride is also used to promote cycling as a viable source of transport instead of driving your car.

Everybody is welcome, no matter what bike you ride. Its a great opportunity to meet like minded people with a love for cycling and commuting.

Tomorrow, being the last Friday of October is Critcal Mass time in Cape Town.  If you are keen to join, meet at the Baxter (Main Rd, Rondebosch) at 06:45. The group rides at a very civilised pace along lower main rd into town where the 2nd group is met at the CTICC at 07:15. The ride then carries on through to the Waterfront and Seapoint where you can either make your way to work or stop for a cup of coffee. There is usually a group heading back to Southern Suburbs if you need to ride back. Enjoy!
