Critical Mass Nairobi

It appears my friends in Nairobi got it all wrong with the dates, but that doesn’t matter. Wiki has this to say about CM

Critical Mass is a cycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month; its purpose 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.

We hold ours last Saturday of the month with an aim to create awareness to the city’s bad drivers that we exist, that it is possible to share the road.

has nothing to do with bicycles

even kids came out for cm

    An excellent idea! I commend the parents for bringing out their children and for allowing them to participate in this important statement. Good for you for being a part of this yourself, my Kenyan brother! Naked hugs!

    I’ve been a road cyclist all my life – as a hobby to keep fit.

    They’re building a pan Singapore wide track set to open in a couple of years time. From the northern tip right into the central business district in the southern tip. Looking forward to it.

    I read a really interesting article on the Ciclovia in Bogota, Columbia, a massive (9 million people) city that basically closes down THE main street on Sundays.

    San Francisco does this on a rotating business. As a cyclist, the “City Streets” are not very useful* (too many hipsters riding unicycles while vaping) but as a community event it is nice!

    Awesome ideas!

    * I may be plump, but I am also spandex-clad and want to ride faster than 8mph!

      8mph is good for a very lazy ride. My average is about 14mph.
      I like the idea of closing down the main streets, even if it is just twice a month for a few hours.
