People's comments about Manchester Critical Mass
"...it's brilliant. Usually I'm charging around on my bike, getting where
i need to go as fast as i can. Critical mass is different. It's about
enjoying riding. It's the most relaxed ride around the city I've ever had.
Where all my worries and fears float away. And I've met some lovely people
"I was scared it would be some angry bike militants but everyone is so
friendly and the ride is fun no aggro at all. See you next month!"
"it's quite something to have that many peeps riding round at once."
"Critical Mass sometimes has a reputation for being an angry rabble of
cyclists that want to string up any car drivers they see. This is not true
of Manchester Critical Mass, it is a fluffy mass of people that like to
have fun on bikes, there are often have children with us and a bicycle
sound system to add to the party fun atmosphere. As well as being fun and
a social event it is also to show how great a car free city will be. This
is achieved every month by showing motorists an alternative, yet critical
mass Manchester doesn't aim to annoy drivers we want them to join us.."
