Today, there was a bike critical mass event, organized in more than 18 major (and more minor) cities around Greece. Podilatreis, our  local (Chania) critical mass team, organized a ride in the city streets.

About 200 people of every age took part in the ride, proving that there is a strong demand for incorporation of policies that favour and respect bike movement in the city streets.

Depicted next are a few photos; for more photos check this flickr collection.

Today’s ride around Vryses village, Chania prefecture. The weather was sunny but not too hot thus favoring bicycling.

At times we got off road, following some nice paths:

Spring in it’s best!

After the ride we had lunch in a nearby tavern.
