    critical mass stories

    I am doing a research paper for my college english class on critical mass, and I was hoping to get some stories, good or bad, from people who have participated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Or go into Google and search for the keywords: "counterproductive", "illegal bicycling maneuvers", and "anarchy on two wheels".

    May the flames begin !!!

    hey Andy, i like your perspective (although i rarely agreee with you) because you make things interesting...

    but come on... i know you can say something more constructive and a little less Rush Limbaugh...

    P.S. yeah, search the forums. i have posted at least one CM story about the police ramming a girl on a bike with a patrol car "for the safety of the community" as she was riding in the middle lane of a residential street going the correct direction with virtually no traffic (she failed to move to the right lane as instructed by the officers, which was an error) but "near-deadly" force by ramming with a patrol car was NOT warranted and VERY dangerous.

    In 30 or 40 years, many of the rest of you will see CM riders as I do--as bigger heroes of and for cycling than Eddy Merckx, Beryl Burton, and Lance Armstrong combined. Every movement for social change needs a cutting edge, if only to make the rest of us seem more reasonable. Watch Portland area news this week--see if their genius police chief and mayor again overenforce around the September CM ride. Hmm, wonder if the city could be sued by the victim of a crime committed during that event who couldn't get a cop when they called?
