Ready to Join?

Every last Saturday of every month, a sea of cyclists (adults and kids) congregate at Protected content in Nairobi Central Business District, to explore the city on wheels! It is a beautiful sight.
They call it the Critical Mass - present in a number of cities and towns. Their only goal is to get more Kenyans on wheels and transform Nairobi into a cycling city.

Gear up and join a safe group to ride your bike, explore the city, or cycle with friends.
Bikes and gear available for hire/purchase.

The organizers (an NPO) have more than 10 marshals on wheels and police outriders supporting the ride. The route is only shared at the event, but ~ Protected content .
It is possible to leave the bicade at any point, you can deliver the bike at a low cost.
