Friday 29 July – Critical Mass Cycle Ride 6 p.m. and Vegan Feast 7-9.15 p.m.
Come for the bikes, stay for the food!
Meet at Dalton Square, Lancaster, at 6 p.m. for the start of the Critical Mass cycle ride; the ride will end at the Friends’ Meeting House, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster for a 7 p.m. start to the Vegan Feast. Come for both or either.
Critical Mass events are cycle rides that happen across the globe on the last Friday of every month. Critical Mass has no leaders, and no central organization. Cyclists block the traffic and lead it in a cycle carnival, in Lancaster around the one way system, to raise awareness of cyclists. The ride is not fast and is a friendly celebration of the bike and its use as a healthy, feel good, low greenhouse gas emission way of getting around. Ride guidelines (like stopping at red lights, making sure ambulances are not held up) are agreed before the ride.
Vegan feasts are alcohol free, family friendly socials where everyone brings a vegan dish, snack or drink to share. Some people cook, some people buy something to bring from local shops like Single Step Wholefood Co-op or Filberts bakery – there’s load of vegan goodies around. There’s usually music and the event finishes by nine so there’s still plenty of time to head to the pub afterwards for those that want to.
