The Anza Club (8th & Ontario)
doors at 8:30
$10 ... or $5 if your arrive with the Critical Mass


- Ned Jacobs vs. The Falcon
- Weeping Willow: some jazzy thing
- Barricade Burlesque with Little Woo
- Tspoon The Masala Mixa w/ BPM and the Sugar Dhols:
An east/west odyssey fusing funk, dancehall, hip hop, reggaeton, and bhangra
with hints of breaks and D+B. With heavyweights BPM on the mic (Rup Sidhu and Nadia Chaney),
Tspoon the masala mixa behind the tablas and the decks and the notorious Sugar Dhols
manning the big drums. Dance floor panic!

ALSO! Josh's veg deliciousness (for early-comers), make-yer-own
buttons, rabble-rousing, and hot bike action.

Did you know the BC Govt. wants to spend $4.5 billion on yet another
harebrained road-expansion scheme, which will just end up as tons
more smoking gridlock in our lovely city? Crazy but true! Those
dinosaur brains are at it again.

But the good news's NOT a done deal. We can stop this
madness, and we will...but it will require a lot of PARTYING. Are you
up for it?
Friday Nov. 24 marks the first party to celebrate the beginning of
the end of the highway.


[and yes we would love a few people to person the door and the if you're into it]

    A reminder that two days after Critical Mass is the World Premiere screening of You Never Bike Alone.

    Here's a synopsis off the web site

    You Never Bike Alone is a feature length documentary looking at the ways in which cyclists are building critical mass in Vancouver.

    Venue - Rio Theatre, 1660 E. Broadway (at Commercial), next to the Skytrain station, B-line and other bus routes.
    Doors - 1:30pm, film starts 2:00pm, Sunday 26th November
    Tickets - $8 at the door (advance tickets available at bike events)

    A new 80-minute documentary premiering on 26th November reveals Vancouver in a new light. Drawing on footage filmed in the city over the course of the last decade and through interviews with people from all backgrounds, independent documentary You Never Bike Alone captures the fun, the road rage, the camaraderie, and the freakiness of riding a bike in Vancouver.

    "You Never Bike Alone charts the history of Vancouver's Critical Mass rides from the early “Tame the Lions” rides, that helped bring about better bike facilities on the Lions Gate Bridge, to the wild spectacle of Vancouver's freak bike collective and the World Naked Bike Ride in more recent times.

    As well as a humourous and entertaining look at cycling in the city, it looks at the implications of transportation decisions by politicians at municipal and provincial levels and asks are we up to the challenge of making a truly liveable city."

    Teaser video clips are on the web site at
