Gergely wrote to tell us that Budapest, traditionally one of the most bicycle-unfriendly cities, has experienced a major boost in the numbers of bike-commuters and cycling is emerging in their mainstream media from the work of a small group of bike activists.
Critical Mass in Budapest include tens of thousands, from diverse backgrounds: “whole families, white collar workers, as well as messengers, young guys on bmxes, etc.” Their next ride is tomorrow and 30 thousand are expected.
April’s ride went well, starting off with some bicycle diversity – me on the folding fixie, Eric on the dutch bike + schlumpf mountain drive, and a nice gentlemen who showed up to on is 192 speed tricycle (sorry, missed your name!) and Michael representing for the rest of you on a non-folding, 2 wheeled, non-internally geared bike. Micheal and Eric and I had a great ride around the city, including Bikestation, the water front, and eventually all the way up Capitol Hill for a meal and some suds at the Elysian. Many good vibes were spread, including to the tow-truck drivers with the moutain bike on the back. The weather did not cooperate for the aquatic theme – it was gorgeous, sunny, and warm. All future RideCivils will bear the aquatic banner in hope of similar conditions.
