The last Friday of every month, a group of cyclists gather at Williams Park at sundown and begin a ride through the Burg. This event is known as Critical Mass. The purpose of the group is to raise awareness of cyclists on the road and endorse respect from all sides; pedestrians, drivers and riders alike. On top of promoting the message "Share the Road" this ride also encourages Burgers to get fit and have fun. This event is FREE and open to the public. The ride begins at 7pm at Williams Park, 330 2nd Ave N.
