We would like to encourage and inspire people to see that cycling is statistically and holistically safer, more efficient, and healthier than any other form of transportation and that with affordable modifications and preparation bikes can be used to shop, commute, recreate, and transport people and their families all over the Bay Area and the World.

Melanique (DJBlack) and I concur that being a victim of car on bike, car on pedestrian, or even a no fault Bike crash like Black's can be addressed as a community.

We want to make this event a reoccurring fundraiser and consciousness raiser about Bicycle Safety and the need to have more information out there for cyclist, pedestrians, and auto drivers about how we can share the public throughways.

I am looking for organizations to endorse this first movement and fund and support further activities to raise awareness and create a cushion for us when we fall down that helps us get back on our feet and heal.

With the current media coverage of the cyclist fatality on MacArthur Blvd and the injuries to cyclist by malicious drivers in Sf last week, coupled with the history of critical mass's beginnings stemming from fatalities on market street SF in 93-94, it is once again brought to a public forum that not only do cyclist need education and training but motorist as well.


I'll organize an invitation and arrange o for some guest DJs.
(Refer your favorite DJ to this event ) It is up to all of us to help this event go down though .

Pass the word and like this and share it to all our community.....


I'm also looking for a sponsorship from a law firm that works with accident victims and bike advocates.
