Thanks!

I am having a hard time finding details for Toronto 2004 on there though. Maybe I am just totally dense, but the only thing I can see on Toronto is dated Aug 2003!

Late October...that could be one chilly ride!

That's what I see (Aug 2003). CMs achieve the exact opposite of their supposed goals. I'd avoid them.

the rides are the last Friday of each month in most cities around the world Toronto 6pm meets on Temperance street south of Queen Street between young street and Bay street and some don't agreee on what the ride does but I believe we have every right to ride the roads and to stand up when bicycle riders are killed and the cops do nothing!!! and fighting to get bad drivers charged WE are traffic but to each his own ( no flame wars please ) cheers.....Steeker

Takes place last friday of the month, ie next is october 29th.
Starting at Yonge and Temperance (outside of spreads) @<>6:00pm
(be there at quarter to just in case)

There is usually about 50-75 riders.

Dress up and light up!

Hi everyone, this is my first post here.

I'm planning on taking part in Toronto's Critical Mass tonight (6 pm at Bloor & Spadina). Don't know what to expect as this'll be my first one.

I am a commuter, and am one of the believers that in order for drivers to recognize us as equals (as we are legally) to themselves, we have to abide by the same rules. I stop at red lights, I stop for streetcars with open doors, etc., etc. I hope Critical Massers tonight largely do the same, because I don't see the point in proving that we are as arrogant as some drivers are.

Joey.
