Richmond will be celebrating bikes again this month with a Critical Mass Bike Ride on the last Friday of August, the 26th, at 5:30pm.
The ride will meet up in Monroe Park at the fountain in the middle.
The times are subject to change and the route is TBA. Meet up at the fountain with your bike and your love. Leave the attitudes and aggression at home. This is not a race, it is a peaceful ride to show co-existence of humans, bicycles, and motor-vehicles. This will be a reoccurring monthly event so put it on your calenders and be ready to ride!
Bring water, any of your preferred safety gear, boomboxes, signs etc.! to make this bike parade festive!
If you want to know more about Critical Mass in general or it’s history in Richmond specifically we recommend you check out the Wingnut zine on Richmond Bike Laws, which includes info about Critical Mass!

You are also welcome to get in touch with the WIngnut if you have other questions. No one is in charge of Critical Mass but many of us have experience with this sort of bike ride and would gladly answer any questions we can.
