Critical Mass Bike Ride

You've seen the poster, now come join us!!!
Please join the attendance list on CS below:

There will be plenty of food, if everyone brings some along to share!!!

Okay Folks, this is the first Critical Mass brought to you by the guys and gals from BikeSurfBerlin.
Open to all cyclists (or maybe even pedestrians could get a lift from a passing bike) of all abilities, the idea is to cruise about the streets and show that the weather is not able to dampen our cycling resolve. There will be ample time to quatsch and chat en route and make new bike-buddies.
Just a thought, but it would be super-fantastisch if people were able to bring some snackable food along (vegetarian/vegan option would be great), so we could have a picnic somewhere along the way. And remember, sharing is caring.
After the ride, we hang out with some Sternies (whoever they are) at the Tempest Anarchist Library.
The secondary objective is to show our continued respect and support for Lampke bikeshop (Graefestrasse 1, Kreuzberg) who has helped so many people stay on their bikes, by providing the cheapest bike parts I have seen anywhere in Berlin - seriously, I don't know how he does it, but we at BSB give respect.

Upcoming BVG and Polizei bicycle auctions - a great way to get your own bike.

Some of you may not have been in Berlin long enough to hear about the bicycle auctions that happen on behalf of Polizei and BVG every two months. Those bikes that are not claimed by their owners after an allotted time are sold off to the highest bidder at these auctions.

Having attended many of these auctions, I recommend the Polizei auctions as they are more organised and have a larger number of bikes on offer.
The benefits of buying a bike in this manner are:
cheap bikes - cheaper than flohmarktsproof of receipt - means you can sell off bike later more easilynot supporting bicycle theftit's an exciting atmosphere and gives you a buzz when you're the highest bidder  It is best if you go there with someone who knows what to look out for in buying a second hand bike, as they are of varying quality and a little bit about how numbers sound in German is a plus.

If you contact us at BSB, we may be attending and be able to help you out in choosing a suitable ride.

The next BVG …
