  • I will be in brum, but I will be eating sushi and going to the giant screen.

  • Is anyone going on gold-medal mass tomorrow?

  • Track racing on big screen Victoria Square beforehand

  • Bump

  • Amazing input there.

  • Next month's CM could be interesting. On Friday the police handed out letters from the church and police asking CM not to meet there any more. The discussion is ongoing on FB (i'm not on it so don't have a link) and alsoĀ­opics/cycling-prohibited-in-birmingham-cĀ­athedral-churchyard

    Some police reckon they will join in next month. Whatever happens I don't think it will be the same again.

    Next ride Friday 1st February.

  • I think Critical Mass in Birmingham lost its way long before this.

  • Well its happened before, and it regains momentum again eventually.

    I remember talking to a guy on the last one I was on who was super-paranoid about police infiltrating CM!

  • If they don't want to look/seem like/actually be dicks they should just move the start point to somewhere else. Oh, and do it on the same day as the rest of the world.

    It's such a pathetically joyless endeavour to put yourself on the line for, either way.

  • Birmingham critical mass used
    To be pretty big when I went from 2005-2007 is it still going well? Still meet at pigeon park and finish at the anchor?

  • It went through a dead spot where almost no one (except rob of course) came, but then it exploded and is now huge. The crowd got banned from meeting right next to the church because of noise, so are usually found outside the perimeter these days.

  • Brilliant ! Can't wait to come along now then! I'll see you at the next one. It will be nice to catch up, Rosie

  • Oh rob - what a committed chap!

  • but then it exploded and is now huge.

    How huge? I've only been once some years ago. It ended with a totally avoidable confrontation with a driver, hopefully it's moved on since then.

  • Interested in coming along to the next one - I've been lurking for a while but thought I should register. I've been riding a while but not been 'social' about it per se, a good resolution for the new year!
