Name of creator
Critical Mass is a leaderless movement that began in San Francisco, California, in 1992 and has since spread to cities and countries around the world. It organizes monthly bicycle rides both to celebrate bicycles and human-powered vehicles and to protest their marginalization as a form of traffic, as well as other issues. Though Critical Mass has been organizing rides in Winnipeg since at least 1999, it came to prominence in May 2006, when force was used to arrest a number of ride participants, leading to accusations of police brutality. Though Critical Mass became less active following these events, its name is still used by community organizers.
