Too harsh on the mass ride?
"i love our ability to take one event, and turn it into 4. . .
everything went smooth as silk on friday (except the 34 arrests). the
speak out was great, thanks to ben and everyone who made that
wonderful event go off.
the ride was interesting. im told we have excellent video of riders
stopping at multiple red lights. . . breaking into several mini masses
. . . and then the cops corraling the folks who were waiting at the
lights. . . lawyers tell me this is a good thing. . .
the party was excellent. . . i counted 40 bikes at one point which is
kind of amazing for the small space in there. . . tabling went great
we raised a little money. . . and then the party moved downtown a
little bit to the 7th precinct. . . with a jail support party hosted
by freewheels. . .
way to go us. . . after a year of this harrassment we are still here,
we are still riding, and we are going to win this. . .
love to you all
Lots of love to all that made the speak-out happen.
all those that attempted to be good bike riders and got arrested for it...may your charges be dismissed.
Thanks to the people who pointed out the Magarita joint which I hadn't known about in the 15 years I've been here and yet every one else has been going there for years.
Thanks to Freewheels
Thanks to all those that worked the table in front of ABC no Rio.
Thanks to the guy who showed me the camera phone video of the sheets of acid he found in a book at the salvation army.
thanks to Jim for taking a picture of me on the ride.
Thanks to bad ass biker for attempting the footdown on Rivington.
Thanks to all those that made tunes with loud boomboxes and ipods.
I hope the August Critical Mass is massive and festive. The theme is supposed to be Aliens vs Robots so warm up those glue guns and carboard costumes...
