On the 25th of May, 2007 there was a Critical Mass in Hamburg to protest against climate change and the G8 Meeting in Heiligendamm[1].

Since then the Critical Mass has grown a lot and is now the largest of its kind in northern Germany.

There is a 'mass' every last friday of the month at 7 p.m. - the meetup location and other details are posted on facebook, just a few hours before the critical mass. More information and the latest event with the date and location can be found at the official Facebook page . Photos and other references can be found at criticalmass.hamburg, which is hosted by several criticalmass-enthusiasts who explicitly states that they have nothing to do with the announcement of the meetup location or other organisational activities.

History[]

The first Critical Mass bike ride in Hamburg was on March 31, 2000 with 15 cyclists. The meeting point at that time was 5 p.m. at the metrostation St. Pauli. Participation in the years from 2000 to 2003 was moderate. Up to 40 cyclists took part during this period. [2]

On July 3rd, 2009, 250 bike riders participated a Critical Mass through Altona, the center of Hamburg and St. Pauli.

The latest numbers from summer 2012 are well above a thousand riders! The police has counted 1200 riders in August 2012, others say it were about 2000 riders.

In April 2014 a new peak was recorded with 4500 riders.
