As I mentioned previously, I hate Facebook but I love bicycles and Halloween.
So I was excited when I saw this flyer:
Previously, when I tried to find any information online about Critical Mass in Wellington…. I thought there wasn’t one. First, try googling “Wellington Critical Mass”. The best result is the NZ Critical Mass website, which seems to be based in Auckland and doesn’t give many details about Wellington’s event. You could show up and be the only person there. In addition, the “Cycling in Wellington” site barely makes a mention of Critical Mass, and nothing about this week’s ride as of today, Wednesday 26 October. It’s not listed on the events calendar nor are any details given. So, if you’re just a lonely girl with no cyclist friends but you want to participate in bicycle activism what are you to do? Well, if you are lucky enough, you’ll come across a flyer in an op shop in Newtown, and know about the event even if the details on the international network are scarce.
Here are some pictures from the last Halloween Critical Mass ride I went on, I’ll try to get better ones this year.
That’s Sonya’s “Reyna Rosa” cape fluttering in the wind.
