Brooklyn Critical Mass April 05

Brooklyn Critical mass rides again Friday April 8th. I was with a small splinter group that met at a park at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge on the Brooklyn side. We decided to go to Queens and Long Island city and not to try and meet up with the other group who meets at 7:00pm at Grand Army Plaza. Against purple backlit sunset skies and skylines of brand new waste treatment centers we rode on in a group of about 12 people. This is a hard place to be in when you are trying to take over the lane of traffic and angry New Yorkers are honking and yelling curse words at you. This is what it must have been like back in the days when critical mass was first being experimented with. It was also reminiscent of the days when cops weren't attacking you either.

Good move. The last I saw the GAP ride was playing some sillyass game in the park with the cops.

We didn't join the main group cause we just wanted to venture out on our own and have just one moment of a bike ride not harassed by police. This decision was made on the fly and as a group after we left the park.
