Bicycology is a collective formed by riders who wanted to build on their shared experience of the 2005 G8 Bike Ride and organise future events of a similar nature. By focusing on cycling we aim to persue our vision of a just and sustainable world through a combination of education, entertainment and creative direct action. The collective was formed during a weekend meeting at the Sumac Centre in November 2005 with 15 original members. There is a Bicycology website at www.bicycology.org.uk which links to this wiki page.
The next Bicycology meeting is coming up this weekend, Saturday January 28th at Matilda in Sheffield. It is rumoured that there will be a Critical Mass in Sheffield that night (a day late for traditionalists) followed by beer drinking and who knows what else. The meeting will carry on on Sunday, hangovers permitting.
