critical mass still rox

i got out of work today and noticed that there were thousands of cyclists buzzing down the street - i had forgotten critical mass, but it hadn't forgotten me! so i hopped on my bike and quietly joined the throng. we went all the way up hastings st (it was neat being in the middle of three lanes of bike traffic) then hung a right at commercial drive. so we did my commute, essentially, except on a much faster route and without stopping at traffic lights. it was great to ride home with an escort of people in tutus and helmets.

you forgot critical mass?

that's what earning a living does to one ...

i know! it's rotten!

also i spend a good deal of my week hanging out with packs of bike nerds, so the mass is not as exciting and special as it used to be. though we don't get as many customers in tutus as you'd think. . .
