NVA White Bicycle Plan

On Thursday the 15th April I participated in NVA's White Bicycle Ride out from the Fountain in Kelvingrove Park to St. Georges Square, a re-anactment of the infamous White Bike Plan, a Dutch anarchist action from the mid 1960’s. It turned out to be a very successful ride with very little agression from the drivers which I have experienced before on Critical Mass when there have been much fewer people.

“The White Bicycle Plan proposes to create bicycles for public use that cannot be locked. The white bicycle symbolizes simplicity and healthy living, as opposed to the gaudiness and filth of the authoritarian automobile.” Provo manifesto
