Budapest woke up for a sleepy but very sunny morning this Saturday. Though being a car-free day, the ususally crowded roads were are full of cars again. On the other hand Andrássy út - the main avenue has been conquered by pedestrians. People of Budapest could enjoy the sun, take snacs and beers in beer gardens and participate in different programmes like road safety educational lectures organised by the Police during the whole day.
From 4 p.m. the ususal demonstartion of bicyclists, the Critical Mass started from Buda and on their way more and more people joined the mass. Last year they've counted 50 thousand participants thus being the biggest byciclist demonstration that has been ever taken place. This year they were around 35.000. Most of them were weekend cyclists, but the hard-core has been represented as well: people who would do not take any meter withouth his bike. They conquer the streets of Budapest twice a year, first on Earth day in spring, then in autumn on the 22nd of September.
