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 40 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. This month ride starts at Williams Park and ends at Fergs on Central.
We will be part of a larger public group. When I went there was a very vibrant, festive crowd.

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.
We are part of a larger group who are the actual hosts. So you need to look for other meetup members and say hi, as there are 30 to 50 riders or so, they may not recognize you if you don't make an effort to mingle.

Any interest in multiple day bike or kayak trips?
Thinking of Florida, Gulf Coast and also Key West when it is cold up north, as well as NYC at Labor Day weekend when city is pretty empty, and a Door County week on Lake Michigan and also the 320 mile Ohio to Erie Trail to escape the summer heat along the east coast and south in late June and July.

Live music, sunset, and Oysters!
Half Dozen Roasted Oysters on the Half Shell, Roasted with garlic, parmesan, bread crumb butter and a full bar
This is an open, ticket-less event.
Limited seating available for this event. We recommend bringing lawn chairs or a blanket and making yourself comfortable on our front lawn!
I have no clue who the "live music" is but sometimes, you have to take chances. Parking IS by valet and very limited in the hood. The sunset alone is an event and the front lawn is huge but hard and lumpy, so bring a chair. Last time, there was plenty of seating so maybe keep the chairs in your car just in case.. See you there!
