Starting in March, every last Friday of the month will play host to a Critical Mass ride starting in downtown Springfield and organically weaving its way through area streets.
Critical Mass is an event that began in San Francisco in the early 1990s and has since spread to hundreds of cities around the world as bicyclists spontaneously come together to ride the ordinarily car-clogged streets of their cities. Critical Mass focuses on the rights of bicyclists and the rights of pedestrians on our own streets.
It is a leaderless ride, free and open to all, where bicyclists take to the streets to promote bicycling as the best means of urban transit.
Be bright, wear costumes, come ready to have fun!
We’ll gather on Worthington St (Make-It Springfield to Stearns Square) at 5pm and depart at 5:30 every last Friday of the month.
