WHAT’S A CRITICAL MASS?
"It’s a bike ride, with a buncha people. We mass together and ride together. Safely. And by the law. The purpose is not to create a disturbance, though we ride on the street, but to demand respect for the two-wheel riders in town. Just like the drivers in their diesel trucks, we too have the right to ride! Come celebrate that right on a leisurely ride through the neighborhood with your friends, neighbors and fellow bicyclists! (Again, a CM is intended to be a celebration, not an opportunity to cause trouble!)" – Flyer poster (PDF)
