is active in some Polish cities and seems to be gaining momentum.
Warsaw CM is by far the biggest - in spring and early summer, it
attracts more than one thousand cyclists. Below, you will find links to
websites of various CM events in Poland. All are in Polish, but you'll
probably guess "when" and "where". Just in case you want to join a CM
and can't decipher what the hell is written in Polish in websites
below: piątek is Friday, sobota: Saturday, niedziela: Sunday, czwartek is Thursday.
The list was
last updated on September 13th, 2004 and will be updated as news come
new CM events.
- Warsaw Mass: www.masa.w.pl (try
also www.masa.prv.pl or www.wawamasa.webpark.pl).
Starts on every last Friday of each month
at 6:00 p.m. at Plac Zamkowy (Zamkowy Square) near Kolumna Zygmunta - the
pillar monument in the middle of the square. Cult event dating back to
1998. Apparently one of the bigger CM events in the world, and a true
Central Europe underground. In
June, 2002, the Warsaw CM was broken by the police with truncheons and
guns. Both sides grew civilized since then and the police accompanies
now CM on bicycles and motorcycles - even though the event for long
time was not
registered (legalized) with the authorities. Recently, CM in Warsaw is
registered with the police.
