What we'll do
Critical Mass is a mass social, family bike ride for all skill levels that meets every last Friday evening of the month, in cities all over the world. I enjoyed going to the one we had in Long Beach, California when I lived there.
Melbourne Critical Mass meets at 5:30pm outside the State Library at the corner of Swanston St and LaTrobe St. My husband, Peter, has ridden in several in Melbourne and will be point of contact for our group in this ride, along with Rus. (I have university until 9:30 P.M. Friday nights, dang it! So can't go to this one but will be at June's. If the group is still around later on, maybe I'll come meet you for a drink or coffee in the city after the ride.)
According to the website, "http://www.criticalma... (http://www.criticalmass.org.au/melbourne/), Critical Mass transforms a dreary commute into a radiant celebration of a vibrant urban life and reclaiming of public space. Bikes are fun and every bicyclist is one less car.
We had a great group and real presence on our Capital City Trail ride, now let's show it off to the public!
