Halloween Critical Mass Ride and Roll!
Friday, October 27, 2006
Join fellow scarry bicyclists, skaters, and bladers for a costumed ride and roll through the streets of Vancouver. The Halloween ride is one of the most fun Critical Mass rides of the year! Meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery on the Georgia Street side between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m., and roll and ride at 6:00 p.m. The ride is on rain or shine!
And of course, decorated bicycles, trailers, signs, flags, noisemakers, gettoblasters and sound systems, drums, trailers, and wildly modified bicycles are all highly encouraged. A VeloWeen afterparty starts 8:00 p.m. at the ANZA Club, #3 West 8th at the Ontario Bike Route.

Pre-rides to Critical Mass:
UBC riders meet at the UBC Bike Hub, on the north east end of the Student Union Building, at 4:30 p.m. for a group ride to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Phone 604-822-BIKE for details.
East Van riders meet 4:00 p.m., leaving 4:30 p.m., from Grandview Park, 1200-block Commercial Drive, for a group ride to the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Celebrated around the world, Critical Mass is a grassroots reclamation of public space -- on the last Friday of the month -- which allows cyclists and other self-propelled people to move safely and comfortably through city streets in a car-free space. Non-polluting forms of transportation are promoted.
