...was a really pleasant, fun ride. We had 20-30 riders, including three unicyclists and a trailer. Lots of people waving and smiling.

Just thought I'd add a counterpoint to the awful stories from Mpls and my beloved Chicago.

Sounds like a bike ride, not a CM

CM takes all kind of forms. Violence has never been a necessary part of CM, it is more the exception than the rule. I am glad to see that there are some more peaceful CMs.
