On Kelly’s actual birthday day, we participated in our first Massa Kritikal (Critical Mass). I’ve known about Critical Mass for many years, seeing plenty of them in Melbourne, and watching a good online documentary on the movement. I’ve never really wanted to participate though; riding through city streets in Friday peak hour never seemed like a ‘good’ bike ride to me. Something like the Melbourne Roobaix is more my style, although I’ve never done that either (seems like you need to be pretty fit) but at least it looks fun!
We’re riding our first Critical Mass tonight in KL (or anywhere for that matter). Looking forward to it. Will report back with some pics hopefully… The above video is footage from the April 2011 Massa Kritikal ride in KL. This video was not created by me. It was ‘borrowed’ for this post from YouTube and was created by TheAimanretro. All copyright resides with the author. I’m kind of stealing this for use here because I was getting errors in the video when embedding.
