4. HALLOWEEN CRITICAL MASS!!! MANHATTAN
Friday, October 30th, 7 p.m.
Union Square North

Grab your bike or rollerblades, and your scariest costume, and get ready to ride through the streets howling on the annual Halloween Critical Mass ride! Always the best Critical Mass of the year- historically everyone dresses up in costume, don’t be shy!

Critical Mass is a monthly celebration of bicycles and other nonpolluting means of transportation, exercising our right to the road. Critical Mass is a movement, not an organization; no two riders participate for exactly the same reason. New York City’s first Critical Mass was in 1993.

For more information see www.critical-mass.org

7. RIVERSIDE RIDE
Saturday, October 31st, 10 p.m.
Columbus Circle (SW corner of Central Park, at the intersection of Broadway, Central Park South 59th Street, and Central Park West)

Come join bicyclists and skaters (and the occasional unicyclist) for a leisurely ride through Central and Riverside Parks. Weather? Our record suggests we only call off these rides when no one in their right mind would have fun. Appropriate for experienced skaters, and bicyclists of just about any skill level. We hope these rides encourage more folks to enjoy the parks at night, without motor vehicles, in a quiet, safe, relaxed setting. The ride is about 12 miles long, and we return to Columbus Circle around midnight.

Check out pictures here.
