Critical Mass: This Friday!

Critical Mass is this Friday, June 27th. Meeting place is the same as always, Confederation Park (Elgin + Laurier). The park is being used by Jazzfest, but fear not, there's plenty of space out front to meet up.

Here are some pics from last month.

Poland gets mega-highway for bikes

A 2000 kilometer stretch of a biking highway is to be built, running through the eastern regions of Poland.

Marcin Myszkowski, one of the leaders of the 'Masa Krytyczna' action - a Polish equivalent of the Critical Mass Riders initiated in San Francisco back in 1992 - says this is news cyclists in Poland have long been waiting for: 'We do not have good bicycle routes in Poland. I hope this will be the first very good bike route for tourists. The result is the most important. Not just to build it, but to build it very well.'

We need more projects like this in Canada. Of course, there's the Trans Canada Trail, but I can tell you from experience, a large percentage of it is not bike friendly.
