Critical Mass Cycling

As a cyclist in Darlington, you may sometimes feel isolated as you battle your way round another inner ring road roundabout. Well, try this if you need a lift (you need Quicktime or similar to be able to play the video):

As is pointed out on the critical mass web site:

"Critical Mass is not an organization, it's an unorganized coincidence. It's a movement ... of bicycles, in the streets."

But if you think about it, many of our problems stem from the simple fact that we are heavily outnumbered by motorised traffic on the streets of Darlington.

You can get more details about the above film (which unfortunately is currently only available in American NTSC format) at www.stillweridethemovie.com
