A Halloween Ride - In Solidarity & Celebration
Friday 28 October, 5pm, College Green, Bristol City Centre
It’s been a while since Bristol saw a Critical Mass bike ride, now its time for one!
Solidarity: with the monthly CM in London that the police are trying to shut down after 12 years of rides – see www.criticalmasslondon.org.uk for more info
Solidarity: with all those killed and affected by the murderous oil/car culture & its side-effects, ruining our cities and planet.
Celebrating: the sustainable culture & economics of cycling. You are one less car!
Celebrating: the excitement of Halloween weekend. Let the devil in you ride out!
Bring whistles, flags, music, witches hats, ghostly masks, theatrics, smiles, friends, flyers, toolkits, and more. Lets party!
Bikes, skateboards, roller blades, wheelchairs, pogo sticks etc – all self-propelled transport forms are welcome
Thank you for not driving
A critical mass ride is a coming together of like-minded people travelling collectively in any particular direction. We do not block the traffic, we are the traffic, and we are held up & polluted by cars and the oil-petrol-car culture.

A safe ride:
A successful critical mass should be safe, fun, and a living example of both collective solidarity and an alternative to car madness. It may help to bear the following in mind to facilitate this:
1. Stick together, don’t become split up, slow down or speed up accordingly.
2. Keep an eye out for each other. If there is an incident with a vehicle all should stop and wait. Those roads can be dangerous remember!
3. Riders at the front should peel off to stop incoming traffic allowing the rest of the CM to pass by safely.
