Biking BA’s first time in the critical mass was a illustrated to us how poised this city is for an urban biking culture. Over 1,000 people showed up on their bicycles of all forms ready to hit the streets and demonstrate that a person on a bike deserves the same respect on the road as to those on motorcycles and taxis alike.
The mass of people on bicycles took over every main avenue of the city in a four hour timespan to draw curious looks from those in buses, cars and their own 2 feet. It was enough to make some give applause as we rode by, in approval of the demonstration. Biking is here to stay in this city!
Until next time, stay classy on that bike and out of the auto.
