July's Critical Mass was a magical experience. It kicked off with mechanical problems, I had a flat on the Brox and the Coffee Cranks Trike had a problem with the back wheel.
As a result the ride moved off fairly late, but no one seemed to mind in the summer sunshine.
The ride took some different roads to normal.
It included a section of the inner ring road - with nearly 200 people it easily took the whole road.
Followed by Deansgate,
and into Liverpool Road
Though I could have done without the cobbles in Castlefield.
The Mass then headed south along Higher Cambridge Street, Lloyd Street North, Upper Lloyd Street and Lloyd Street South
and finally into Platts Field Park
for an evening of film and food.
One of the best ever!
