Beach Ride

Sunday July 12, 2015 11:30 AM
Meetup: Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn
(Northern entrance to Prospect Park)

Join us for a leisurely bike ride out to Rockaways to enjoy an endless Summer afternoon of swimming, and relaxing on the beach! 

Please consider donating land or real estate (a vacant lot, residence, vacation home, farm or commercial property, etc.)- all land donations are acceptable to us and you can get a 100% tax write off. Appropriate land could be used for anything from starting another community garden to taking inner city groups out to farms, wetlands, and educational ecology sites were they can get a hands-on feel for the soil and the animals.

Critical Mass meets the last Friday of every month in over 200 cities around the world. NYC's Critical Mass and group bike rides increased bike riding and created the sustainable, safe infrastructure that now exists in NYC.

Let's not forget how positive direct-action changed the whole city. Please support the safety of pedestrians and the bike community by joining the Critical Mass Bike Ride on the last Friday of every month.
