Orlando Loch Haven Park, 900 E. Princeton St., facebook.com/orlandocriticalmass

Critical Mass is a monthly community bike ride meant to promote awareness of alternative means of transportation. Hundreds of people meet at 6 p.m. every last Friday of the month at Loch Haven Park, then fill the streets with cyclists, riding around Orlando en masse (get it?). The best thing about Critical Mass is that there are so many people riding together that it’s the safest way to enjoy a bike tour of the City Beautiful, which was recently designated as the worst place to be a pedestrian in the country. The pace is steady but leisurely, everyone is smiling – except that guy at the stop sign trying to get home – and it’s quite possibly one of the best cycling events we’ve ever taken part in.
