Everyone on the ride

Description

Just Plain Fun

Distance - ??

Critical Mass is ultimately just a bunch of cyclists riding around together, going from one point to another. Someone coined the phrase "organized coincidence" to describe it. But attempting this simple task forces so many questions. Why is there so little open space in our cities where people can relax and interact, free from the incessant buying and selling of ordinary life? Why are people compelled to organize their lives around having a car? Critical Mass is many things to many people, and is foremost a celebration, not a protest. It celebrates bicycling as a fun, positive alternative to the dreary destructiveness of car culture. Pick whatever reason you want, and come! "We're not disrupting traffic. We ARE traffic."

Route

The route is set by the ride's participants. We can end up back at the capitol for those of you who will be parked there.
