Critical Mass

Yesterday we've celebrated 1st anniversary of critical mass here in Istanbul. It was AWESOME! We were more than 200 and acted like a giant fish flock. Of course it was an unpleasent day for people who sits in their cars but we got the support of pedestrians. We had young participants too, even babies sitting back of their parents. It was a wonderful day :) I love my bicycle...

What is critical mass? Wikipedia says:
Critical Mass is a bicycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world. While the ride was originally founded in 1992 in San Francisco with the idea of drawing attention to how unfriendly the city was to cyclists, the leaderless structure of Critical Mass makes it impossible to assign it any one specific goal. In fact, the purpose of Critical Mass is not formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and traveling as a group through city or town streets on bikes.

Here is the facebook page(although I'm not a facebook fan):
