Critical Mass

Squall 10, Summer 1995, pg. 7.

Critical Mass, 26th May. Approximately 500 cyclists took part in a demonstration of bike power in Central London. This photograph was taken at the junction of Amwell Street and Pentonville Road where a cyclist, Kate de Pulford, was recently killed by a skip lorry. On mass, the cyclists stopped at the busy junction, dismounted and many raised their bikes in the air as a gesture of respect and defiance. Critical Mass is taking off big-time.
