The organisers said: “This is a leaderless formation of new and experienced riders. We work together through the ride, learning together to keep each other safe.

“Critical Mass is a hugely successful global cycling phenomenon - most participants describe the rides as a celebration of cycling.

“Some Covid social distancing still applies, so please do keep some distance on the ride from those outside your bubbles.”
