the dinky but tuneful sound system
listening to the samba
half the crowd are off shot, it really was substantial
flower fairy does a lap of the roundabout
the kid on the bouncy stilts moved really fast
a proper bells and whistles situation
come to sunny Kernow, where vikeings ride the streets
down the highstreet (there's only really one road in town)
refueling with icecream

and then picnics in the courtyard
The samba band grabbed a fair bit of attention for the initial gathering, and then everyone set off for a rather disjointed but joyous perambulation down the town. The response from the high street was a dramatic, several jaws literally dropped. Once people got over the shock almost everyone grinned. There was very little driver lairyness, and the police (who had been taken unawares, and weren’t there to mind the start) made no really interventions.
Saturday lunch is of course an unusual time for a Critical Mass, but it does kind of make sense in a small tourism based community, and a good time was generally agreed to have been had by all…There are plans to do it regular.
These photo’s aren’t particularly representative of the ride, but do show lots of people being happy on bikes.
