Critical Mass Lahore February 2009

critical-mass-iii2
The last Sunday of the month is approaching. You know this means it’s time for Critical Mass.
Join us at 10am this Sunday 22 February for Lahore’s 3rd Critical Mass cycling event.

Cyclists in China coined the term Critical Mass to describe the phenomenon that takes place when cyclists can take over streets and traffic dominated by automobiles. Critical Mass now takes place in over 200 cities around the world.
Critical Mass is not an organization. It is an idea. Critical Mass is about having clean cities that provide mobility and accessibility. Critical Mass is about clean transport.
Critical Mass is about showing a man on a cycle is the same as a man in a ten lac car. Critical Mass is about democracy. Critical Mass is about having the right to mobility.
Everyone in Lahore knows how bad the traffic is. Critical Mass Lahore is the first step in taking our streets back.
Critical Mass is an idea. Make it yours.

What do I need to participate in a Critical Mass Event?

Nothing but a road-worthy cycle and an sense of fun.

Where and how else to Critical Mass Events take place?

Critical Mass events are typically held on the last Friday of each month in cities all over the world. Get more information at http://www.critical-mass.info. For information about Critical Mass Lahore, some to Zakir Tikka at 10am on Sunday 22 February 2009.

  1. Zakir Tikka! It used to be my favourite joint.

  2. I miss Lahore 😦

  3. I wonder if there would be any women cyclists at the event. “A man on a cycle” can’t really do much if half the population is barred from participating. Can we really bring democracy with this event or is it just democracy among men? Will the politicians and industrialists ride bikes that day too? The whole idea seems preposterous to me.

  4. The group is a great mix of men, women and children from all over Lahore. You have to experience the event.

  5. I’m away at the moment, but could you post pictures of the event on Lahore Nama?

  6. I was delighted this evening to learn about Critical Mass while watching express news. I think the idea is great and would surely like to join. I have been riding a bicycle for more than 20 years as a small contrbution to a healthier environment. Last year I built a bicycle trailer and use it to do all the shopping for the institution where I live and work. I am able to cart up to 120 Kg. on my trailer and would like to join up for the next event. Please keep me informed.
