Critical Mass in Santa Cruz this upcoming friday! Post flyers around, tell your comrads, inflate your tires! You guys know the routine - gather around the clocktower (downtown, off of pacific) at 5 p.m., depart at 6. Hope to see you all there!

went last time comments: "so is the ride going to be like the last critical mass? there were only about twenty people, they took up the both lanes on mission, and then tried to start fights with motorists. it was my first CM here and it did not make me (or the people i was with) want to go again. i thought CM was about bikes getting together to acomplish a common goal or just to have fun, not be a dick to people and try to piss them off, but maybe i'm wrong?"

Re: Critical Mass This Friday in Santa Cruz!

Critial Mass is about bicyclists riding together to not only spread a message about the environment and oil dependency, but also to celebrate the bicylce community and to 'reclaim' the space that is normally dominated by automobiles. While intentionally pissing off motorists only serves to alienate them from our causes, we wont refrain from doing things like taking up both lanes on mission just because a few people are too impatient to wait for bicyclists. Critical Mass is an 'organized coincidence', we're all just biking home together and having a good time while doing it, right? If you want more information, by all means check out the critical mass website. Hope to see you out there! :-)

Re: Critical Mass This Friday in Santa Cruz!

I bike everyday to work and really enjoy it. I find that most SC motorists are courteous. However, from what I've seen of your critical masses, many of the cyclists are setting a tone for road rage. Please use your events to set a more positive example.
