Pls confirm... Is that Vic Square... Time???
Cheers. Not able to make it though... seems stuff is getting in the way of having a good time. I will put last friday of month in my calendar for the next one.
Yea why go out in the cold when you can sit at home in the warm and antagonise AC'ers
"..No, I'm not a big fan of being a deliberate ass... on the road and antagonising drivers.'
+ 1 (except for offensive language.)
I wonder, does CM have a "group" here at AC..? I reckon they need one.
I been on two CM's, the timing is invariably inconvienient for me but I found on both occaisions that there were a few radicals that went out of their way to antagonise anybody and everybody, not just motorists but pedestrians as well by taking an extra lane and then slowing down, riding through red lights, riding on the pavement and through other pedestrian areas.
Critical Mass's time has passed.
We should change it into a peak hour single occupant car club.
Only catch is you need to have a bike attached to your car and drive around in formation.
"..Critical Mass's time has passed. .."
But a commuter "bike bus" would REALLY make an impression, as well as doing something useful ...
Something useful would involve getting the impatient types of motorists to wish we were back riding our bicycles.
"..Why so negative ...Have you ever attended this great social ride?.."
FWIW: I spent some time trying to organise a regular Friday PM demonstration ride well BEFORE "CM" arrived in Adelaide ( yes , there was life before CM..) . At the time, there was ZERO support from the Bicycle Establishment, even tho our stated aim was merely to * assert* cyclists existing rights to use a FULL lane ( NOT the whole road..) .. we struggled on for a few months.. got a top roll out of about 12 participants ...did NOTHING illegal ( on purpose).. got nowhere .. then CM turned up, they were so not interested in our efforts. I went on one of their rides : I got left behind, when I stopped for a traffic light (!) That was enough for me ... your current ride may be different now ( dubious, IMO), but you are using an old "franchise", so you can accept the baggage that goes with it. Enjoy yourselves, though, I doubt you are doing much else for urban cycling / CH / nb my observations above refer to c. 1995 or so ..
