Critical Mass


Critical Mass is an important event for me and for the world. Its why I started this blog so I feel dedicated to giving it a page.

Critical Mass has two happenings in New York City:

The last Friday of the Month. Meet at Union Square at 7:00pm

the other ride is in Brooklyn, the 2nd Friday of each month. 2 locations to meet at, Grand Army Plaza (Park Slope) and the Base of the Williamsburg Bridge (Brooklyn side) at 7:00pm
Sometimes these two rides meet up and sometimes…well you know.

Chris Ryan of Team Spider, has been covering Critical Mass NYC for years. He has compiled a mass of videos of various rides and often risked, violence and arrest from police in order to do so.

These videos are also made with members of the Time’s Up Video Collective.
