Follow-Up to Fredericksburg’s First Critical Mass

On August 5th, a handful of cyclists gathered in downtown Fredericksburg to celebrate cycling in solidarity with each other. Though we were few in number, our presence was bold, as we chanted slogans like “Bike more! Drive less!? and “Cars kill cities!? We got positive reactions from cheering pedestrians and a few smiling motorists, as we rode through the First Friday celebrations that regularly occur downtown. We ended our route after about an hour outside of the Board of Visitors Office—the site of many living wage rallies for the classified workers of the University of Mary Washington—where we continued to cheer.

Fredericksburg Critical Mass expects to grow in the coming months, as more people return to town with the end of summer and as more people become aware of the rides. This ride was a successful first step towards making our presence known and towards exercising our right to the streets of Fredericksburg.

Mark your calendars for the September Critical Mass (9/2), and keep riding!
