Critical Mass returns to Austin: July 29th, 6pm, Pfluger Ped Bridge

Critical Mass is a monthly bicycle ride to celebrate cycling and to take back the streets.

(We USED to meet on the last Friday of every month (holiday or not, rain or shine) at 5:00pm (with wheels down at about 5:30pm) on the UT West Mall where it meets Guadalupe (between 22nd & 23rd Streets).

We will NOW meet at the pedestrian bridge that parallels Lamar and head out around 6:30pm -- still the last Friday of each month, however.

Participation will vary a LOT as this is a comeback from the original Critical Mass/Critical Mass in Austin. There have been as few as two riders and as many as hundreds. "Typical" was 50 or 60. Let's see if we can double the "typical" numbers from Critical Mass Austin hiatus. Costumes or dressing up and being as bright and loud as you can be is strongly encouraged.

The last Critical Mass in Austin of this kind occurred on June 26, 2015. Let's keep the spirit alive and get butts on bikes Friday nights!


editor's note: there is another ride that has recently popped up that is calling itself Critical Mass, however, it has little in common with the original Critical Mass rides beyond the name.  This ride is attempting to get back to the ride's roots and be more like the rides of "yore".
