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.

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.

Bake sale for Grandma, Friday October 23rd.

A strong member of the NYC bike community known as “Grandma”, was in a bad accident.

Here is a blurb from Cyclehawk

As most of you know, a good friend of ours, “grandma” was in a very bad accident on Friday. His helmet saved his life. Without getting into too much detail, he has a punctured lung, severe damage to his spine, a broken jaw and quite a few other problems right now. Our friend is in alot of pain and is currently awaiting results of an mri before surgury can begin and he can start his long uphill battle of recovery.

In order to help cover the costs of surgery and to eventually get him back on the road, we are having a silent auction. If there is anything you would be able to donate at all please do. I know alot of you guys are fantastic artists. sketches, paintings, drawings, design work, photos, bike parts, tshirts, tires, baked goods, anything really would be really really appreciated. 100% of all proceeds benefit our fallen friend. Grandma is a wonderful person, and really needs our support right now.

On the flyer below is an email address where messages will be relayed to him as well as a paypal address. Drop him a line.
Date TBA.
