Critical Mass New Zealand

Critical Mass is a spontaneous, leaderless bicycle ride that occurs on the last Friday of every month in almost every major city in the world. It is regarded by many participants as celebrations of selfpowered transportation as opposed to a protest or organized demonstration. The purpose of Critical Mass is not formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and travelling en masse through the city streets. While the original ride in San Francisco started to draw attention to how unfriendly the city was to cyclists, the leaderless structure of Critical Mass makes it impossible to assign it one specific goal.
