You Never Bike Alone! March 29, 2008

Filed under: bike,places — perak @ 7:10 pm

For many years I remember Vancouver to be listed in the top 5 of the “best cities to live” world-wide.  Although it has the fourth highest population density for a major city on the continent, it  seems to be a bike-friendly city according to WikiTravel. Nevertheless it has a very  vivid biker community according to the “You Never Bike Alone” documentary:

“It is about how cyclists are building critical mass in Vancouver, Canada, and changing the face of the city. The cycling phenomenon known as Critical Mass is a reclamation of public space that started in San Francisco in the early 1990s and spread by the internet throughout the world. On a set day, at the end of every month, cyclists and other self-propelled people ride en masse through city streets. ”

Our local (Chania city) critical mass community is  called Podilatreis  and it’s activities can be tracked in this blog (in Greek). From time to time we also organize various rides away from the city, inside the beautiful prefecture of Chania. For tomorrow we plan a ride to the  Vryses village. I have got two empty slots in my car’s bike stand for anyone interested. Vrououououououououom, ready to go!
