    critical mass-milwaukee-Saturday-11am-bring your bike!

    Meet at Beans and Barley (north ave, between oakland and locust) ride down farwell to wisconsin ave, over to water, around to prospect, up to north, over to oakland, up to the park just south of locust...on the left (west side of street)...bring sandwiches if you wanna picnic, or a frisbee or whatever else sounds like fun to you...i think I'll play on the swings, personally...

    we all know what critical mass is...just show up and ride with us...meet new people, hopefully...get on it and do it!!!

    to recap...

    saturday (this saturday)
    beans and barely
    11am
    ride!!! (cause a ruckus)
    park/hang/play...

    I don't know what to expect turnout-wise...never tried to organize one of these before...we'll see how it goes...I am pretty new to the area and it would be nice to meet some more riders...I see a lot of bikes, but I dunno how many kids are on here...any questions please get in touch...we are trying to find a house that we could meet up at after the park and watch like, breaking away or quicksilver...haha...it should just be a good time.

    thanks

    man, it's great to hear someone is trying to re-start critical mass in MKE. If I was there right now I'd definitely be down. I'll be back at the end of the month, though, and then you can count of me to help stir up support.

    if you know any of the Wisconsin Bicycling Federation, you should let them know. Did any of you guys do the Santa Ride in Milwaukee this last year?

    horay for riding on the Hoan Bridge, finding a wedding ring at the top and 40 or so cyclist getting pulled over by a Sheriff!

    haha...we are gonna shoot for one at the end of the month, more toward REGULAR cm timing...if you are down to help out, rather than criticize you should contact me...(that wasn't meant to sound mean) I've obviously never done this before, and i could use the help...i talked to cory (the bike fixer) and he said if we get one organized, people will show up...i know several people that are totally down, and I am new to the area, so help me meet people!!!!

    xtmx, I can dig your enthusiasm, and meant no offense. I am supportive of cycling and would also be down to ride CM here in Milwaukee. Just not on Saturday mornings I thought there still were sporadic CM rides here on the traditional last Fri of the month, but I am unsure of their current status. It might be easier to try and rekindle that? I also try to get to Chicago CM as much as I can coz I like the freakbikes and the multitudes.OH.........and the Milwaukee Bicycle Collective is having an open house soon. Maybe even as soon as next weekend? check itout

    yeah, it is the 14th, I have to work...which pretty much blows, I'll show up for a few hours before...the current status of cm in milwaukee is pretty much nothing...but I think there is plenty of support...whereabouts in milwaukee are you kids, and would you be willing to go out flyering on bikes sometime? that is always a good time.

    As I've already talked to Jason, I wont be around for this Saturday's attempt.
    But...
    Count on the last friday of June at around 5:30pm (traditional critical mass time)
    I'll be back at the end of the month, and we'll campaign and promote hard for that.

    AWESOME!!! i have cory (the bike fixers) support, he said he won't ride but he will totally hang fliers and what-not, not to mention his whole staff is pretty much down (but that is only 4 or 5 dudes)...I'm sure we can get the local bike dudes...my friend jon is pretty down with the messengers...and I know a lot of the old punk dudes from work...haha, it should be a relative success, i'm pretty stoked at the thought of it...
