There are many ways to celebrate National Bike Month. We at the Valdosta Bike Co-op would like to invite you to ride with us at Critical Mass. Critical Mass rides are held in hundreds of cities around the world, including Valdosta. The rides are neither protests, nor demonstrations. Instead, cyclists who ride in Critical Mass intend to raise awareness about bike safety and proper riding procedure.
By riding en masse, the group hopes to send motorists the simple message that cyclists belong on the road. If you are interested in learning more about Critical Mass or joining in the local ride then bring your bike to the Toombs Street parking lot, adjacent to the Bleu Pub, on the last Friday of every month. The next ride will be Friday, May 25. Cyclists will meet at 6:00 and the ride will begin at 6:30. Don’t be intimidated, the route is short (3-4 miles) and slow-paced and will lead the group around scenic parts of central Valdosta. On night rides lights are required and helmets are recommended.
