Subject: Solidarity with NY bikers

Dear colleagues,

Here in Spain, Europe we followed with interest the police affair against critical mass in New York. Every media put pictures about it. I organize critical mass in my city and I am scandalized with the behavior of NY Cops.

This Friday we have our critical mass. This time it will be devoted to all of you.

Yours sincerely,
David Escudero

Subject: international coverage

Hi Carmen,

I'm not sure if you were there, but I thought you might be interested in this short article and photo that a friend just sent me from Germany.

(loose translation: Demonstrators took to a field completely naked in the Canadian city of Vancouver in the name of peace. The passionate cyclists met at Sunset Beach and created a huge peace symbol under the motto "Bikes not Bombs".)


Nacktes Friedenssymbol in Vancouver

Vancouver - Völlig nackt gingen Demonstranten im kanadischen Vancouver für den Frieden auf den Rasen. Die passionierten Radfahrer trafen sich am Sunset Beach und bildeten unter dem Motto "Bikes not Bombs - Fahrräder statt Bomben" ein riesiges Peace-Zeichen.

Subject: Moscow, Idaho Critical Mass

Hi Jym,

Thought you might like to know (if you haven't heard already) that we have been having 'Critical Mass' rides, with attendance around fifty, for three weeks running now in Moscow Idaho.

The specs: meeting, 4:00 PM (pacific) at east city park proceeding for about an hour ride all around town, then ending at Freedom Square where The Palouse Peace Coalition has been meeting every Friday afternoon since November 2001. This weekend we will join the PPC in the Mardi Gras parade and I would like to see a hundred bikes participating.

Subject: Critical Mass Melbourne, Pedal for Peace Ride

PEDAL for PEACE, Friday Feb 14, 5:00pm

Critical Mass Melbourne, Pedal for Peace Ride
February 14th, 2003

In Melbourne's largest anti-war rally ever (even larger than the Vietnam War moratorium marches), cyclists organised a parallel route, inspired by the London Halloween Pedal for Peace in 2002. Instead of walking down Swanston St, the ride pedalled in adjacent streets to support the rally to Federation Square.

Want to Send Me Email?

You're welcome to send me friendly email to let me know about Bikes Not Bombs and similar peace-oriented bike rides that I could list on this site. Details are here.

Pros Not Cons

The Bikes Not Bombs organization and Food Not Bombs movement both appeared in the Boston area in the early 1980s. Since then, a number of groups, movements, and protests have adopted similar names, including Books Not Bombs, Brew Not Bombs, Homes Not Jails, Homes Not Cars, People Not Cars, and Trees Not Cars.
