Critical Mass - Supporting
Port Phillip BUG

Come along for a March ride through the south east - future bike paradise... once we get SAFE CYCLING on CHAPEL STREET... a PROTECTED LANE on INKERMAN... and a BIKE PATH on QUEENS AVENUE!
Starts: Federation Square @ 5.30pm. Ride south east through Prahran, East St Kilda, and Caulfield.


Critical Mass rides allow participants to show support for changes to the fabric of Melbourne. Some of the benefits of joining a ride include:Increased visibility: Large groups of people, more visibility, safety, and a show of what people want.Advocacy: Protest, shout, push, or politely ask. Rides give participants an outlet to have their voices heard.Community building: Make friends, meet likeminded people, share experiences, have fun, and install a sense of camaraderie amongst active transport users.Increased cycling: These rides show people that biking is a viable option.

Health: Moving your body is good for you. Bikes allow people from all backgrounds and all levels of ability to move around and stay healthy.Environment: Bikes are efficient, clean, and don't damage city streets or pollute the air. Need we say more?

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we live, work, and ride. We pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging. Critical Mass rides take place on land that was stolen, and we acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.Designed and supported by Fobii
