Kidical Mass – the biggest yet!

More than 400 riders, young and old, took part in the Kidical Mass ride last month despite the (initially) gloomy weather.

We were blown away by the turnout and the energy and enthusiasm of the riders, calling for safer streets for people on bicycles.

Here are some quotes from the ride:

“It was a beautiful experience to be with so many happy people supporting each other cycling through Brighton and Hove. I’m not a seasoned cyclist but I felt totally supported! Loved it!”

“I enjoyed talking with other people and the atmosphere of music and cheers. Also, seeing people applauding and encouraging the procession was very nice.”

“I heard a child cycle past me saying “This is the best day ever!””

It was a special day where we saw a glimpse of Brighton and Hove of the future – and we can’t wait!

Watch the ride, filmed and edited by the talented George Overington.

It also got good media coverage locally on at least three news websites (Brighton & Hove NewsSussex Express and Brighton Journal).

The ride got wider coverage when it was covered by TV news for the first time, on two bulletins of BBC TV’s South East Today that same day.

Kidical Mass was organised by us at Bricycles, Brighton BikeHubOSR BikeTrainBrighton Multicultural Women’s Cycle Club and Clean Air for Brighton & Hove, with funding from Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival.

When I went to the bike shop to try out options I was excited to discover technology has moved on since I last bought a bike. A new generation of ‘smart’ e-bikes offer integrated anti-theft protection, using the bluetooth on your phone as a key.
