So tell me more about Critical Mass!
So sorry, you’ve dialed the wrong number. This is Critical Manners. Critical Mass has a very comprehensive wikipedia article here.
What is the Critical Manners ride?
May I direct you to the “About the Ride” page?
But why did you decide Vancouver needs one?
When I mention to people that I cycle to work I get one of two reactions:
1. GAH! I hate cyclists. They never obey the rules of the road and get in my way and hold up traffic and and and….
2. WOW you’re brave! Cars are awful and take over the road and never see me and I’m afraid of being run over and and and…
Obviously neither of these responses are optimal. The goal of this ride is to prove, in force, that bikes and cars and pedestrians can all share the roadways successfully.
How will I know it’s you (or not you), riding down the road?
We’ll be the ones following all the rules. It’s fair to say that if you see a cyclist not following the rules of the road, they’re not with us. As much as we’d like to make sure everyone is using the road responsibly, the best we can do is lead by example. We obviously aren’t the police, just the polite.
I ride in Critical Mass, can I still participate in Critical Manners?
Absolutely! The only requirement for participating in Critical Manners is that you ride according to the rules of the road. We would love to have you join us!
