Nobody runs Critical Mass – it just happens. This cycling event (aka the world’s largest bike ride) coincides with other rides all around the world that take place on the last Friday of every month at about 5:30 p.m. People gather in a predetermined location, then ride through the streets of their city. Sometimes it’s for a cause, like when Critical Mass dedicated a ride to saving the trees in Orlando’s Constitution Green Park or when the group rides to remember cyclists killed by cars. But usually it’s just for the sake of cycling and reminding people that the streets should be safe for everyone, not just people driving gas guzzlers.
