The August ride last night had many hundreds of participants (as usual for a summer ride) – though I’m not going to try to estimate more precisely! Quite a few people I chatted to before and during the ride were first-timers – and there were certainly many old-timers too. (Though I didn’t recognise anyone I “knew” – in the Critical Mass once a month sense – which I found a bit surprising; maybe it’s because I haven’t been able to be on the ride for some months, and there’s a gradual turnover of “regulars” … not to mention my memory…) Continue reading

Critical Mass London September 2017
We loved the London Critical Mass ride. This time, it went to the site of the latest killing.
Some commments on some closed network that spies on every one, whether we belong to it or not, and is only accessible by selling your soul and friends. Continue reading
Critical Mass London December 2016
Report from hickster
It was foggy. It had been foggy all day. Or misty maybe. Especially next to the Thames. And we all seemed a bit foggy too. The ride didn’t start until 19:22. Even then, there wasn’t much attitude to get moving. The December ride can be bitterly cold which motivates us to move. Not this time.
Critical Mass London 24 June 2016
From Albert in the list:
The ride went across from Waterloo Bridge to Kingsway on top, via Aldwych,not through the tunnel this time. Also, at Holborn, it went north past both main crossroads, and turned left into Bloomsbury Place, and on to Great Russell Street (just like last month … why this sudden fetish for goingpast the British Museum?).

Nice route, nicely paced with good bunching so that the mass stayed together pretty well – really enjoyed it, we stayed in until about 10.30pm.
Critical Mass London 30 January 2015
The route included St Paul and Brixton – and a shopping mall in between.
Reports from FB:
It was a great night, lots more than last month and without the cold rain we had last year.
Getting into the shopping mall was great, the security man’s last words that I heard were “I’m surrounded by bikes” Continue reading
