Critical Masses going strong in Newcastle


Today saw the latest of Tyneside's monthly critical masses which take place on the 1st Saturday of the month, meeting 12noon at Haymarket.

Another glorious hot day spent with new friends going round the city centre streets. We forgot flags and leaflets this time but created quite a spectacle anyway, with the occasional lone cyclist or rollerblader joining in spontaneously. The driver of 'Corporate Hospitality' coaches wasn't too happy though, hee hee.

Chaos Mass: Mayday weekend in Manchester starts with bike ride


Mayday celebrations in Manchester began yesterday (Friday) with a Critical Mass. Numbers of cyclists had almost doubled from previous months.

Yet, the Mass alos turned out to be more chaotic than usual. 40-50 cyclists could not agree on how fast to go, whether to stop at red lights etc. In the beginning the tail of the ride got lost several times.

Southend’s first Critical Mass stopped by police.

Southend 1st Critical Mass 1

On the 14th of April, the first Critical Mass was held in Southend-on-Sea. About 30 people met around 6pm to have a fun cycle ride through the town. With colourful signs and messages stuck to their bikes (i.e. ‘We are not blocking the traffic, We ARE the traffic!’) and accompanied by a sound system playing reggae, the cyclists started riding with a peaceful and happy atmosphere. After about one and a half hours joyful riding the police finally decided to join us. One police car followed for about half an hour before they got supported by two other cars and a motorbike and stopped the ride for ‘obstructing the highway’. Unfortunately there were only 15 riders left by that time so the ride stopped for that day.

Anti M1 widening group visit Selston


This was the last of the highways agency's consultations for phase 2 of the M1 widening in our area, phase 1 had no consultation as they claimed not to have to do one as they already own the land. Tell that to all the people who will be affected by it, we are looking into the legality of not consulting on phase 1.

No M1 widening visit Kegworth

Kid with gas mask in pram


The Highways Agency circus was in Kegworth this Saturday making its penultimate exhibition to sell the M1 widening project to residents. This expensive road show should not be confused with any sort of public consultation for although the word is used in their literature, the public have no say in the Government’s decision to waste £3billion of tax payers money on increasing CO2 production in the UK.
