Support Bicycling & Join a Leisurely Ride through Albany

Monday, September 30 at 5:00 PM
Meet, with your bicycle, in Albany, at the Civil War Monument in Washington Park(near the intersection of State Street and Henry Johnson Blvd.)

Critical Mass, an group of people who promote bicycling as a valid transportation method, meet the last Monday of each month to take a leisurely ride through Albany. Following all traffic rules, Critical Mass riders bike two-by-two in one lane of traffic. Riders will occasionally let others know of their purpose by chanting. (The new chant used on the August, 2002 ride was, “Burn fat, not gas, another bicyclist for Critical Mass!“) Critical Mass riders promote the idea that bicyclists have as much right to the road as gas-burning vehicles. For a little exercise, and must camaraderie, join Critical Mass for their September ride.
