I've never done a Critical Mass in my life yet my gal wants to go at the end of month. She thinks it'll be "fun". Fun for me on a Friday night would be perusing the literary classics, such as Robin Quiver's A Life or possibly taking in a matinee of "Family Guy" followed by a nap on my couch. Though sadly it looks I'm gonna have to go for a little ride. Weeeee!
I've never gone on one because the folks who participate seem a bit extreme for me. I really don't want to protest anything, promote any social cause, I've never been to a Food Not Bombs, I don't own a "freak bike" and I eat meat. Lots of it. God, I want some crispy bacon right now.
I'm kinda one of those guys who wants to go have fun. Period. So I need to know what I need to bring for my first Chicago Critical Mass. I know I need my track bike (or "Streetrack" in  speak) but what else. Here's my list:
1) A bandana to cover my face.
2) A "Free Mumia" sign.
3) A funny little bell for my handlebars. Maybe in the shape of a bear.
4) Fill - - In - - The - - Blank
