March Critical Mass

Last night's Critical Mass was another great success. There were over 250-300 cyclists participating, and with the time change a few weeks ago, we didn't have to worry about riders being in the dark without proper lights. We tried to not "cork" intersections as much, but with that many riders, it is very difficult to get everyone through the city without running a few lights and holding up traffic. I personally don't mind blocking traffic, since the purpose behind Critical Mass is to create a "bunch up" of traffic at the intersections and by the time the bikes all go through, the car traffic would have reached "critical mass". I treat it as my monthly protest to take back the the streets for bicycles.
