Critical Mass

Another Birmingham Critical Mass on Friday, and although it was the first wet and soggy day of the classic UK ‘Wear a wetsuit’ season it was an excellent ride.

Next month will be a Light/Diwali themed ride, so dig out those battery powered string lights. If you have blue neons and a bright yellow jacket as well, well no harm done. Photos are in the Gallery, and see you all next month!

1st Friday of the Month, St Philip’s Cathedral 5.30 PM.

Critical Mass Wall SprayWant to cycle round the mean(ish) streets of Birmingham for a few hours and meet some great people?

Birmingham Critical Mass is the place to be!

Roller-blades, skateboards and strange things with wheels you found in the garage are all very welcome.

1st Friday of the Month, St Philip’s Cathedral 5.30 PM.
