Cycling / Critical Mass: Two's Company Fri 29th March
« on: February 25, 2013, 04:22:54 PM »
Join us for a free fun ride around central Bristol as we celebrate cycling and our right to use the roads safely. Route is decided by those present on the day.

The theme for March is Two's Company.

As a tribute to Ross and Clare Simons and just because its fun, you are encouraged to bring a friend along to Critical Mass and either:
Come on a tandem
Dress up as a well known duo, eg Mario and Luigi.

The best kind of friend you can bring is someone who's never done Critical Mass. If all of the 40 or so people who came in February come to this and bring a friend we'll be nearing 100! Imagine how great that would be!

Top tips for a safe mass:

1. Stay together, stay safe
If the mass thins out some car drivers will try to overtake when its not safe to, so its best to stay as a dense group.

2. Traffic lights
As a group Critical Mass obeys traffic lights, but if the light turns red while the mass is passing through it KEEP GOING. As long as the group stays together people will see what's happening and its perfectly safe. Otherwise you get a split mass and chaos ensues.

Cycling / Cycling Support at UWE
« on: December 03, 2012, 06:45:25 PM »
"This year I am really fighting to get people fit and active and to start I am attacking commuting to University! Cycling is the cheapest easiest and often fastest way to get to university, don't believe me check out our smart travel challenge on the 18th October (more info below). I cycle almost every day from Whitehall which is almost 5 miles away, even on the days it is too rainy I at least cycle to the train so i'm on my bike literally every day...It's healthy, it fun, it's fast and it wakes me up for the rest of the day...can your mode of travel do that?"

Brake the Cycles End to End

From the 28th March to the 17th April 2013 we will be cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats visiting eco communities, permaculture projects, and transition initiatives, in an immersive holistic educational adventure.

Plan-it Earth

The End to End is the UK’s most legendary and classic cycle tour. Free-wheel with us through some of our nations most stunning landscapes, visit some of the most inspirational land-based and community projects, hear discourses from expert speakers, undertake a ‘Principles of Permaculture’ course, enjoy daily practice of nutritional therapy, yoga, and meditation, cycle over 1,000 miles in 3 weeks.

Be inspired by your body!

We are partnered once again with The Big Red Bus Company who will be supplying a double decker London Routemaster powered by recycled chip fat oil as our support vehicle, allowing our participants to cycle without the burden of luggage on their bikes, and act as our field kitchen.

The End to End is a community fundraising challenge for the UK’s first Building Man festival. Drawing inspiration from Burning Man in the States, BM will be 100% participatory, pioneering an operational gift economy, however instead of a ‘leave no trace’ philosophy in a desert scenario, we will be establishing physical infrastructure in eco communities, urban creative hubs, and permanent festival sites, empowering emerging communities.

Applications for the End to End 2013 are now open!
Places are limited to 16.
