Yes, we ride the last Friday of every month!


Global Climate Strike @ Sept 27th

Calling all cyclists! Your bodies, energy, steeds and creativity are required for a local / global day of action for climate justice!
The week of Sept 20-27 will go down in history as the first Global Climate Strike, where "millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone."

On the last day, Fri. Sept. 27th, the Vancouver event will meet for a rally outside City Hall (1pm) and then march across the Cambie St. bridge to another rally outside the CBC. 

All cyclists are called to Sept 27th, with bells on, with two options for involvement. If you can take the afternoon free, then join the Bike Bloc for the Climate (see link for details). In brief, the bloc leaves Grandview Park at 12:30 to descend on City Hall in time to bolster the rally.

Otherwise, what a sweet coincidence that this big day of action happens to fall on the last Friday of the month :-) We've been re-building Critical Mass for precisely an event like this, whereby bicycles and a bit of civil disobedience can help to convey the message that business as usual is not acceptable! Mark you calendar, deck your bike with noise makers, lights and bunting, polish your signs, and warm up your vocal chords for a Critical Mass with a global purpose! As ever, meet outside the Vancouver Art Gallery in time for a 6pm departure.
