Will of onNYturf sent this report of the June Critical Mass in NYC

There is a bizzaro land where cyclists ride free the last Friday of
every month. Where cycling is supported AND promoted by the Mayor. Where
there are no police helicopters or marauding scooters. Where the media
does not blame cyclists if they are hit by a car. It is a place where
bicyclists one day a month fill the streets and cars have to wait, and
amazingly, despite all the bicycling, nobody dies ties in a traffic jam,
emergency vehicles are not grounded, the city does not burn down, and
the capitalist system does not collapse.

Many readers are probably already aware that San Francisco is the home
of Critical Mass, born there in 1992, and that today Critical Mass
enjoys the full support of the San Francisco government including The
Mayor. This past Friday I had the luck to be in San Francisco for a best
friend's wedding and was able to join the June ride.
