    Here we go again. CM Bklyn.

    Ride. Or don't. I'm not gonna get all judgy.



    Critical Mass Brooklyn meets on the second Friday of every month, rain, shine or police repression, Grand Army Plaza, 7pm. Some backsliders and appeasers will be meeting elsewhere. I will not dignify their cowardice by speaking further of their perfidy.

    Whatever. Remember when this stuff used to be fun, instead of a reason to dread riding? Remember when this was about riding with your friends and imagining the city in a new, different and better way? I do. I do.

    Long Live the First Amendment! May the people NOT resort to the Second Amendment. Charleton Heston and his friends in the NRA are doing a great job.

    Looks like it's going to rain. If so, I'll be there on my bike. If not, I'll probably be there on foot with a video camera.

    If not, why not ride with a video camera?

    Hope to see you!


    (Oh yeah...after last month I got full-up rain gear, though it's not bike-specific...full rainsuit at Home depot cost 17 bucks! All I need is rubber boots w/SPD cleats! )

    I figure if it doesn't rain I have a much higher chance of getting arrested. I have to go upstate tomorrow and so I really don't want my plans ruined. We'll see though...

    Oh. I've been trying to forget about the getting arrested part and stay focussed on riding. Like I said last month, it's someone else's turn to wear the cuffs. They don't match my new slicker anyway.

    The ride actually went fairly well. About 7 of us met up at Grand Army Plaza, with a much smaller group of cops this time. We decided to negotiate with the police which worked out fairly well - we followed traffic laws, they followed us. We met up with another group of about 7-10 riders awhile later, and we continued riding until we split up and went home. No one was arrested or ticketed!

    Glad it went well! Yeah NYE's CM would be insanity I'm sure. I mean where the hell would you ride to?

    Any of you NYers going to the Time's Up legal meeting tomorrow?
