What Does The Critical Mass Means ?

What Does The Critical Mass Means ?

It is hard to find many people of our State does not know anything what does actually the critical mass means. What's the benefit of it and much more? So, for the awareness of the people, "Critical Mass" means a gathering of cycling enthusiasts in a place, and then, have a ride in a city or town. Critical mass is held by the Manipur Cycle Club on the last Sunday of every month.

It is critical for the environment, for promoting cycling as alternative means of transport, for the cycling community to come together. It has no leaders; there is no Nationak group that licenses local rides. In every city where there is a critical mass, cyclists just picked a day time and started handing over fliers. You don't need anyone to authorize your ride. Just do it.

Critical mass like bike tours with hundreds of participants took place in Stockholm, Sweden in the early 1970s. But the first ride within the present wave took place on Friday, September 25, 1992 at 6 pm in San Francisco. At that time, the event was known as 'Commute Clot' and was composed of a couple of dozen cyclists who had received flyers from Market Street. Shortly after this, some participants in that ride went to a local bicycle shop for a screening of Ted White's documentary "Return Of The Scorcher", about bike culture overseas.

In that film, American Human Powers Vehicle and Pedi cab Designer George Bliss noted that, in China, both motorists and bicyclists had an "understood" method of negotiating intersections without signals. Traffic would queue up at these intersections until the backlog reached a "Critical Mass", at which point that mass would move through the intersection. This term from the footage of the movie, was applied to the name of the ride, and the name caught on, replacing "Commute Clot" by the time of the second event.
