HALIFAX – Critical Mass is a monthly community cycling activity which allows anyone that can ride a bike a chance to safely ride on Halifax city streets for their own personal enjoyment and empowerment. While cyclists go to Critical Mass for several different reasons – social, political, recreational, environmental – many cyclists note ‘it feels pretty good to be the dominant force on the road for a change.’ In general, the Halifax Critical Mass group organizes group rides in an effort to advocate for safe, accessible and continuous bicycle infrastructure throughout HRM; to educate motorists to share the road (such as respecting the recently implemented 1-meter passing law); and, to reach out to those that have an interest in cycling and nurturing cycling culture.
