Cancelled CRITICAL MASS (Mumbai Chapter) ride on October 27th 2012


 It appears that we have to drop the CM this month too… we got a feedback about people not being able to attend due to festive season weekends and family commitments. Many people are out of town on vacations/work etc. Lots of people are involved in their own events…. lots of cyclists involved in the PBCH, either participating or are a part of the organising group. Without adequate attendance, the basic aim of CM, that of VISIBILITY gets defeated and hence we have decided to call this off.
Another important announcement is in the form of a request to all Mumbai Cyclists, to preferably keep the evening of the last Saturday of November free to attend CRitical Mass…… an Eminent American Journalist is visiting Mumbai with a specific aim of covering the CRITICAL MASS event of our Mumbai Chapter……

: Hello Enthusiasts, there is a CRITICAL MASS (Mumbai Chapter) ride on October 27th 2012…

The Critical Mass will start from NCPA at 5:45 pm and ends at JUHU PUSHPA NARSEE PARK (CYCLE PARK) at 7-45 pm. Aim being maximum visibility we go via Marine Drive- Chowpatty- Kemp’s Corner Flyover-Peddar Road- Haji Ali-Worli- Prabhadevi- Shivaji Park- LJ Road- Lucky Bandra- Linking Road – Juhu Tara Road – Jalsa- Juhu Pushpa Narsee Park(Cycle Park). Cyclists may join anywhere enroute.

CRITICAL MASS is a cycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world. The ride was originally founded in 1992 in San Francisco. The purpose of CM is not usually formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and traveling as a group through city or town streets on bikes. Critical Mass is a movement helping cyclists to reclaim their city streets!

The event has no leaders. We want to get noticed as commuters who have equal rights to the road and we intend to increase visibility by riding en masse during peak hour in crowded areas. The keyword here is VISIBILITY.

The Critical Mass will start from NCPA at 5:45 pm and ends at JUHU PUSHPA NARSEE PARK (CYCLE PARK) at 7-45 pm. Aim being maximum visibility we go via Marine Drive- Chowpatty- Kemp’s Corner Flyover-Peddar Road- Haji Ali-Worli- Prabhadevi- Shivaji Park- LJ Road- Lucky Bandra- Linking Road – Juhu Tara Road – Jalsa- Juhu Pushpa Narsee Park(Cycle Park).
