Milano is a city full of cyclists and bike lovers – the city is built on a flat area so it’s perfect to move around on the two-wheeled vehicles. Unfortunately, the city is not organized enoufh (as the Netherlands are) to keep bikers safe.
Therefore, a group of fearless and noble bikers started to organize events in order to protest and make their voices heard by politicians.
Critical Mass is a carnival of strange bikes and cyclists that meet every Thursday in front of the Duomo in order to make a round trip around the city. It is incredible to see hundreds of bikes cycling together, obstructing streets and crossroads.
Believe me, if you like getting around on bikes during the evening, this is your event!! You can meet funny people and see very strange two-wheelers. Many participants have pimped their vehicles, adding music speakers, LEDs or other gadgets.
PS: Now Mobike/OFO is active in Milan, so it’s easy to get one and participate.
