We believe that activism is important in any form, as making your voice heard is one of the most important things one can do in a free society. When it comes to activism with regard to cycling, we think it is vital, as cyclists normally do not get the same voice that motorists do when policies related to the road are crafted. This is obviously wrong, so the fact that an organization like Critical Mass exists to attempt to right some of those wrongs is something that we fully support.
Critical Mass is one of the biggest and most popular cycling events in the world when you combine all of the events that take place around the world on a regular basis. The fact that so many people are able to work together to achieve a common goal of raising awareness for issues that impact the cycling community is amazing and is the reason that this website exists, as we are passionate about being activists for the cycling community and bringing those important items into the public eye.
We are also fans of a great underdog story. Critical Mass started as a group of a few dozen people riding bikes to bring attention to a cause, and turned into something where people around the world band together to bring attention to things that they care about so deeply. The odds of something like that happening are astronomical, yet Critical Mass has been a huge success.
It is at this point that we must mention that we are not an official website of Critical Mass, and rather just people who are fascinated by Critical Mass and everything that it represents. Supporting peaceful activism is something that everyone should be able to get behind, especially when it comes to something that is not polarizing in any way, such as the rights of cyclists out on our roadways. This is our way of showing our support to those cyclists, as they attempt to continue to bring about positive changes in their communities.
