Come out for an afternoon ride around NYC on a tour of some of the best bike shops in town.

Maybe the shop owners will even let you test ride your dream bike! Suggestions for bike shops to visit are welcome. This is an easy leisurely ride, bring locks for your bike and money for anything you need to buy.

4. HALLOWEEN CRITICAL MASS!!! MANHATTAN
Friday, October 29th, 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! Become the positive and spoooooky celebration of what our streets could look like with non-polluting sustainable transportation and community.
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.

5. HALLOWEEN DANCE PARTY
Friday, October 29th, 8 p.m.
C-Squat, 155 Avenue C between 9th and 10th Streets

Grab your scariest costume and get ready to dance the night away at the Time’s Up! Halloween Dance Party!

******************
6. RIVERSIDE RIDE
Saturday, October 30th, 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.
