Description

This is a space for queers and allies to meet and find a cycling community. We love a spectrum of genders, ages, identities, and bikes and welcome you to ride! Wear your glitter, cycling drag, or whatever makes you feel fabulous and fierce.

Pace will be leisurely, and the ride will be 5-10 miles. We aren't setting a route ahead of time, but won't venture too far North or South. 

Let's help build a bike scene we want to see in Chicago! Suggestions? Concerns? Want to help? We'd love to hear from you.

 

MEET UP: 6PM

RIDE: 630PM

Best of luck with this!!

FWIW agree with Etienne-- later would be great. Unless I take off work I can't make it anywhere on a worknight without regenerating first.

Also-- I stumbled across this today:

Thank you david. I hear you. We hoped for interested folks to organize with! Lets talk about ageism and priv/oppression in the bike community were creating and find how wed like to navigate it and get liberated from it! I look forward to meeting, riding, dialouging, amd organizing w you!

I'm in!  A thought and request.  If there's a small turnout, what about organizing (v. riding)?  I'm a chicken when it comes to small masses (fyi---it's about traffic, not the closet. LOL).  I'd hope this group becomes an inclusive group.  I'm an older queer guy who is really tired of age-ism within both the biking and queer communities. Thoughts?

@Adam, are you on Facebook?  If so, like our page.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Queerly-Massd/257687454251600.  We'll be announcing future rides there.

@David.  It doesn't conflict with the big ride.  I like your idea of also having a presence at the big monthly mass as well though.

Wish I could go. I'll keep my eyes peeled for next time. Will it be monthly?

@David: Critical Mass is next Friday, September 30. 

 

Humboldt Park is a large place. Where exactly are you meeting?

Comment by Michael on September 23, 2011 at 8:42am
I've been looking for something like this for awhile.  However, I'd prefer to have a presence at the regular monthly mass downtown and/or have our own mass at a time that doesn't compete with the downtown mass.  Others' thoughts?
