There will be a meeting of cyclists Friday July 27, 2012 at the Legislative Building for a critical mass bike ride. The group plans to leave at 4:30pm, heading north up Albert Street to downtown Regina. The ride will end at Victoria Park.
Here is a link to Wikipedia’s Critical Mass page for more information.
The people organizing this ride are new to critical mass and would appreciate feedback, experiences and suggestions on how to best hold a fun mass bike ride every month.
Looking through the Wikipedia page and reflecting on my own cycling experiences, I wonder if some traditional aspects of Critical Mass, like ignoring traffic laws, may do more harm than good? Cyclist-motorist conflicts here in the city can be quite acute. I hope to hear from people who participated in critical mass events in Regina in the past in order to avoid repeating mistakes.
