Hallowe\’en Critical Mass

October 25, 2005 – Join fellow scarry bicyclists, skaters, and bladers for a costumed ride and roll through the streets of Vancouver. The Hallowe’en ride is one of the most fun Critical Mass rides of the year!

Meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery on the Georgia Street side between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m., and roll and ride at 6:00 p.m. The ride is on rain or shine!

And of course, decorated bicycles, trailers, signs, flags, noisemakers, gettoblasters and sound systems, drums, trailers, and wildly modified bicycles are all highly encouraged.


Pre-rides to Critical Mass:

UBC riders meet at the UBC Bike Hub, on the north east end of the Student Union Building, at 4:30 p.m. for a group ride to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Phone 604-822-BIKE for details.

East Van riders meet 4:00 p.m., leaving 4:30 p.m., from Grandview Park, 1200-block Commercial Drive, for a group ride to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Looking for something to do after the ride? One option is the Halloween Just Dance, 9:00 pm at 2114 West 4th Avenue at Arbutus featuring DJ Abheeru. More information at http://www.justdance.ca/. There’s also a rumor of an impromptu Parade of Lost Souls in East Van later that evening — but don’t quote us on that. Come to the ride to find out more.

Celebrated around the world, Critical Mass is a grassroots reclamation of public space — on the last Friday of the month — which allows cyclists and other self-propelled people to move safely and comfortably through city streets in a car-free space. Non-polluting forms of transportation are promoted.
