Critical Mass is a worldwide movement to help promote “share the road”. We come together to ride bicycles, creating awareness, respect, community and fun.
We will be riding with the St Pete Critical mass group of maybe 80 people.
ST PETE —This ride is held on the last Friday of every month. In St. Pete, the gathering starts at at 7pm at Williams Park in Downtown — leaving at 7:30 sharp, so arrive by no later than 720.
This is a free, community-organized, family-friendly and medium-paced ride at about 10 mph, usually 10 to 15 miles long. All bikes and ages welcome! Don’t forget to tag your photos with #SPCM.
Be sure to have plenty of air before the ride so you can avoid flats. Florida law also requires bicycles to have front and rear lights at night and for all children under 16 to wear helmets.
Ride respectfully and responsibly. Ride at your own risk.

When I went before most folks went out for refreshments at the Independent Brewery on Central. I am open to other options. We will be part of a larger public group. When I went there was a very vibrant, festive crowd.
In July after the ride and a stop at the Independent Brewery several of us went to Hawkers. In August and September ride ended at Flying Boat Brewery https://www.yelp.com/biz/flying-boat-brewing-saint-petersburg

The Critical Mass ride will move at a fairly casual pace of 10 mph. The ride is ~10 to 12 miles. The rides are at night, so we HIGHLY recommend Lights (LOTS of lights!) (Law REQUIRES lights at night, but that'll be between you and the popos. We're not your mom.) Critical Mass is a large group ride to have FUN, meet new people, and to promote urban bicycle safety, skills, & confidence.
By attending You accept all responsibility for risk of injury in this nighttime activity.
Remember besides lights being important on this nighttime ride that bright clothes and a helmet would be prudent too. Critical Mass does NOT have a support vehicle so test your bike before you get there, inflating tires and take a spin testing brakes and gears etc.
Questions? Post them here or im me through Meetup.
