Critical Mass NZ & NY

Green MP Mike Ward will lead a 'Critical Mass' cycle protest through Auckland's evening rush hour on Wednesday as part of his Kaitaia-to-Wellington trike mission. 'A Critical Mass is both a cycle ride and a grassroots reclamation of public space,' said Mr Ward, the Green Party Spokesperson on Sports, Fitness & Leisure, and Associate on Transport.

He wants to use his bicycle as his principal means of transportation.
