Critical mass Nairobi- February edition


If you are a cyclist and live in a city with other cyclists, you can all meet up once a month for a critical mass event. It helps to create awareness to motorists that there are other legitimate road users who may not necessarily be driving. And this is important especially in countries where planners, city managers and road engineers have never thought of integrated road design that takes care of non motorised users.

In the video below, for those who want to meet the face behind the blog, my bike comes into focus towards the end of the clip and disappears.

    Why are there cement blocks on the road next to the white line? Is that area supposed to be a designated bike lane? And why is the right side of the roadway elevated?

    There was a separated bicycle lane in an industrial area of Richmond, CA (an older, poor industrial suburb of San Francisco). They used gray asphalt curbs. I was not paying close enough attention one day and misread the curb as pavement. 😦 I went down.

    A year later I revisited the area, and they had painted the entire length of the curb bright white. Someone must have had an accident and complained!
