To increase energy and excitement around city biking in urban environments, GoodtoChina organizes critical mass rides in conjunction with other sustainable events such as Eco-Global Party, Eco Design Fair and Concrete and Grass. We especially want to encourage and change perceptions among Chinese youth and communicate the desires and problems involved with cycling in the city.
A critical mass ride is when many riders come together and ride en masse through the city. Critical mass rides happen in over 300 cities in the world and are often held on the last Friday evening of the month.
GoodtoChina uses critical mass rides as a healthy transport alternative to get to sustainable events. People are encouraged to join the bike ride, enjoy other people’s company and arrive at the event in a way that allows them to stay fit and healthy. Critical mass rides are cycling events and celebrations of healthy urban transport.
