Description

CRITICAL MASS
~~~o 1st Friday of every Month, Meet at 5:30pm
~~~\;, Bike ride at 6pm
(*)/ (*) Civic Park, Newcastle

********
DIFFERENT FUN THEMES EVERY MONTH!

Critical Mass is your once a month opportunity to ride in SAFETY and style.
Assert your right to travel safely on roads, and not in the car door lane.
(Car door lanes are too narrow, cycle safely in the left hand lane)
Sustainable transport, not 2nd class citizens.
Meet people, share skills, make new friends.
Unsponsored and unaffiliated, Critical Mass is an intentional community
in motion, one that brings life back to the car dominated streets of our
fabulous city. Critical Mass is Pollution Free Traffic, Safety in Numbers, Party on Wheels.

If you think riding a bike is too hard or too dangerous, then you are doing it wrong.

Some Bicycling Virtues :
- HELP SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE CHAOS with bike culture
- Preservation of environment not more highways, roads, land clearing, dams, mines
- Peace, not wars for oil
- Sustainability, not peak oil depressions
- We don't block traffic, WE ARE TRAFFIC!
- First Class Road Users for a safe city, & to bypass speeding car culture carnage
- Effective communities, not Urban Sprawl
- Cheap transport, not multinational greed
- Health & fitness, not sedentary obesity
- Clean air, not toxic exhaust fumes (No asthma, no cancer)
- Cycling fun, not stressful road rage
- Human power empowerment

Grassroots, sustainable push bike culture in action!
Promoting Sustainable Culture by being in the public using a non-consumeristic,
clean, safe, fun thing.
Ride an "old" bike that doesn't require buying things to run, bikes don't waste
resources, bikes help solve consumeristic climate change chaos culture!
We will ride around handing out info flyers to the community.
