  • It's been suggested that this year, on the anniversary of the forum's creation (or near enough) we would simply join critical mass and turn it into a mahoosive critical mass, by simply having a rolling party.

    All you need to know is the time and the place:
    Time: Meet from 6pm
    Place: On the South Bank, under Waterloo Bridge, the stone circle 50m to the East of the BFI.

    Bring whatever food and drink you might need, sound you might want, bikes you want to ride... and we'll just make CM a rolling birthday party.

    The point is just to make this the biggest CM London has seen, and to have a real blast doing so, and sharing a load of memories from the last 3 years of the forum. Forum t-shirts are not obligatory, but would certainly be a laugh (I'm thinking of Tynan's designs in particular here).

    Oh... and lists! Who's in?

    [update 1]Post ride drinks will be at the ever affordable Dover Castle, which is on a private mews and therefore has no traffic so 100 bikes will be safe: The Dover Castle, 43 Weymouth Mews, London W1G 7EH [/update 1]

    [update 2]Right, this is going to be a cool ride but...

    The "but" is that three cyclists have died in lorry related incidents since the CM invasion and party was announced and that means that various other cycling groups who attend CM really would like to visit the sites of those incidents to pay tribute and to highlight the issue.

    I've spoken to a couple of people about the LFGSS party and actually the line everyone has been saying is that CM isn't owned or led by anyone, and it will be interesting to see both the mix of those partying their arse off and those joining to pay tribute.

    The consensus of those few I've spoken to seems to be: Let the mass visit the sites of the fallen, but let's keep the mood that of a vibrant party/festival on wheels.

    So on Friday do come down with the intent to party hard, but don't fight about the route and let it go where it goes (the sites of the three that fell).

    Whenever you get tired and want to turn aside, head for the Dover Castle just North of Oxford Circus (posted earlier) and that will be the post-CM drinking hole.

    Have fun, enjoy it, it is still a party on wheels... the lorry issue is just one we should really be supporting and highlighting so let the route be guided by that.

    By what accounts I've heard, this week's CM is going to be absolutely huge, and the weather might just make it even larger too.

    i can have a soundsystem ready but might need a bike / trailer to get it moving ?

    i will try and get a C90 1.5hrs of music together

  • The challenge for me will be ensuring I'm coherent enough by the end to get on the first Eurostar the next morning.
