The Critical Mass – Cycling as a Political Statement

Doris and Peter live in Vienna. They enjoy living here and like the city. The only thing that the two all-weather cycling enthusiasts are not so keen on is the traffic. Accordingly, they are regular participants in the Critical Mass, a monthly “cycle demonstration”. In Vienna alone, up to 1,000 people take part in this group ride on the third Friday of every month. The route of this ride is different each time, but one thing always remains the same – the desire to raise awareness for environmentally friendly mobility and to make a political statement. Doris also cares about this.
