January Critical Mass

Even at -20C, a few of us highly motivated psyclists made ot for the ride... a very nice photographer from the Mirror even took our picture!

See you at the end of February.

November Critical Mass

During November's ride, we were rolling up St-Laurent, when we found a three-piece band standing outside an art gallery, presumably for a vernissage. Seeing us go by, they decided to play a few tunes.

So we did what any self-respecting party-on-wheels would do: dance!

I can't beleive how many people showed up... we must have been at least 200. Can't wait for the xmas ride!

November ride

This month's ride is coming up fast, and we've got the theme: visibility! Winter is slowly beginning to make its presence felt, not least of all through fewer daylight hours. All the more reason to make a spectacle of yourself! So grab your fluorescent outfits; blinkers, flashers and reflectors... and I'll see you Friday!

October Critical Mass

It turns out last Friday's Mass was a huge success, so of course I had to miss it because of work... Someone counted about 150 riders, all in halloween costumes. Damn. If anyone's got movies or photos, please send them along!

Hallowe'en ride

Thanks to Laurent, there are a couple of new designs in the "flyers" section, have a look.

October's ride is coming up fast, and happens to fall dangerously close to HALLOWE'EN. Get costumed!

September Critical Mass

Fantastic ride! The weather was very unpleasant; 10C with rain off and on, but we still had a great turn-out - about 120-130 people.

The police presence was also much less repressive compared to last time... several cops were on bikes. I didn't like the fact that there were about five cruisers following behind, flashers running. It felt like, well, being followed by the police.

Check out the "photos/videos" section for more of such. Can't wait to see everyone at the end of October!

Article in the Link

Concordia's independant paper the Link recently wrote up the Die-in, and the editor was kind enough to send me a couple of very nice photos taken at the event. They can be found in the appropriate section, and the article can be found [here].

Critical Mass is TOMORROW, people, and it looks like the weather might actually cooperate. Can't wait to see you there! This month's theme will be music; here's the official press release from Charlie:
