WET ROADS- SO RIDE CAREFULLY



However, this ride will probably be on wet roads.
So we decided on changing the start point to Bandra-Kurla Complex (from our usual Shivaji Park) from this month onwards.

REASONS FOR CHANGE:
Advantages:
- More "central" than Shivaji Park, since quite a lot of riders are from suburbs in Northern Mumbai and the distance to Shivaji Park is significantly more
- Wider roads, both in BKC and the Western Express Highway
- Ample space for any number of cyclists to gather together
- No pedestrians to block our way (or vice-versa!)

Another major reason for a change of start-point in the past too, is so that Critical Mass can be taken to different parts of Mumbai (and hopefully, beyond too) to make Critical Mass a truly widespread phenomenon... right now, there may be a lot of people who are missing out on Critical Mass simply because they feel that the start-point is too far to ride to and fro each time... and everyone may not have access to easy means of transporting their cycles that far... So the more we take CM into various parts of Mumbai, the more the people who can join in...

just to check, do we have any cycle shops closer to this starting point (BKC)? Since I don't own a cycle, would love to know which would be the closest shop for getting a cycle for this event. I live at Matunga Central.

Need to clarify beforehand: I have a bldg. picnic on sunday so i cant be tired(which i am due to the long late return trip back home) for that(plus preps for same since i am core member) but i am trying my level best to be at the start point(not riding though :|.. So juzz in case i am not around sorry in advance... but i am really trying my best to be at start. Plus been ages since i met with Amit ;P

But of course the rest of the gang is there to take care of all things.
