AHA MEDIA films Vancouver Critical Mass Bike Riders on Robson and Burrard Streets

June 2, 2009 Leave a comment

As our urban environment screams for a reduction in pollution, Critical Mass movements around the world lead the way. This event, typically held on the last Friday of every month is where bicyclists and other self-propelled commuters take to the streets en masse.

Critical Mass is a grassroots reclamation of public space — a bike ride and skate — held the last Friday of every month. Bicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, self propelled couches, and any other form of human powered locomotion are all welcomed!

Although this event did not originate as a protest movement many cyclists have adopted this event to ‘reclaim’ the streets and reflect the urgency for environmental care and change.

In this video, the first wave of Critical Mass Bike Riders become the traffic on Robson St in Vancouver much to the surprise of pedestrians and car drivers.
