Critical Mass Islamabad – Free Cycling on the streets of Islamabad.
We do it for fun,
for a greener experience,
for bringing in that change most of us long to see,
for being apart of doing that little something different,
for a mass just peddling side by side,
for whatever POSITIVE reason you might feel the need to grab a bike and glide down these roads besides your fellow biker (not to miss the climb up the same roads, that comes first always! )
We look forward to having you all with us on this “Mega Ride” Kindly spread the word amongst your social circle about it.
Read the Sunday Ride’s details as below.
LETS GET SOME FUN ROLLING IN !
The “Mega Ride” is an easy ride around the city to show cyclist strength. Its open to cyclists of all age groups therefore anyone who has a bicycle can join us easily!
In this ride, we have kept one starting/end point and two route. Since the Mega Ride caters cyclists of all age-groups and gender, we have designed an “Easy” and “Xpert Route” so that both the new comers/first timers and the professional/regular cyclists can enjoy the ride!

So come on time, get ur self registered with us for free (so that you can receive cycling trip updates from us). Just make sure you get yourself a helmets for this ride, as Helmets are Mandatory!!
