Critical Mass is 20!

21 Mar

Mass it up in April, when Critical Mass will be turning 20 years old!

Critical Mass in April will be held on FRIDAY the 25TH. You can even celebrate early at the Mass on March the 28th!

Critical Mass is a mass bicycle ride that takes place on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world. Everyone is invited! And no one is in charge!

CM originated in 1992 in San Francisco and is now held in over 300 cities around the world (2003 figure, now likely much more).

  • You can read more about CM London’s figurative days, and take a nostalgic walk down early HTML webpage designs, by checking out their original webpage – Origins and Early days.
  • I also found this by Andy Smith, which includes (some) photos (!!) and ride reports, such as the CM London birthday ride from 1997. What a gem.
  • David Dansky of CTUK and Adam Thompson of Hackney Bicycle Workshops and Hackney Bicycle Film Society talk about early CM London.
