CM....can we do it the way it should be done?

yes
I began riding in portland over 6 yrs ago.. the streets have never been so crazy with cars, and there has NEVER been as many people on bikes:>

but really, can we do critical MASS as one? without breaking up? we are a herd, fuck the red lights and stop signs....YES LET THE TRAIN GO THRU...and the bus.. but really people...can we do just this one next ride as ONE?

POWER TO THE PEDAL PEOPLE!!!!!

btw- I challenge everyone who has a bike to go this next ride, may 26th. and bring a a friend..tell a friend, BRING YOUR MOM!
I think we can 19.May.2006 08:13

I'm trying to do what I can to invite as many people who care more about biking than getting mean looks from pigs. Those bike-jock fucks decked out in corporate logos, telling people to obey the police can have their own ride... seperate from ours (though it would probobally turn into a police-bikejock orgy in the streets). CM has been radical since it began, and in most cities it still is. Let's not give it up without a fight.

Also though, for those who can't wait for CM to be radicalized, we've started a monthly Criminal Mass. We're spreading the info by word of mouth, so be on the lookout.

Love and solidarity.
