    There's a "bro party" tomorrow night:

    tomorrow
    Bro-Party
    1342 S Mole St
    wear your best bro outfit and bring your best bro drinks.
    starts around 10-ish

    But the dudes over at phillyfixed are kinda tight-knit and--assuming you don't know them (I don't)--you won't fit in. I went to the scavenger hunt last weekend and a lot of the phillyfixed members were kind of bully-ish. Plus that party will hardly represent the population attending critical mass.

    PM me if you want to ride around the town after CM is over tomorrow.

    Let's see. You guys are planning to block streets so some folks will be late to work, maybe get fired. And, mom's trying to get to daycare before it closes will be late, and pay a $50 late fee. And, maybe some ambulance rushing someone to the hospital will arrive too late to save their life.

    I'm kinda hoping that that the Philly police get a little "baton practice" and then give you guys an after-party down at the city jail. ESPECIALLY the guys who think it is funny to give a "Bro Party".

    I doubt anyone's going to work at 6 PM. And too bad for ms. too-busy-to-care-for-her-own-child.

    I don't think we'd be so inconsiderate as to block a emergency vehicle.

    If we're running red lights I don't think 10 seconds lost in your life will do too much damage, or make you late for work or day care. And we have every right to take up both lanes, so too bad.

    PMed back, Astronomical.

    servers and bartenders usually go to work at 5-6 for night shifts. holy hell, are you serious about "ms. too-busy-to-care-for-her-own-child"? i've never really thought about how critical mass rides could negatively effect the drivers in this way.

    No.

    But I firmly believe that our riding does not negatively impact traffic to the degree that alanbikehoustin thinks.

    Although it's a bit more than 10 seconds for critical mass to cork and pass an intersection.

    I make an effort to get to work early despite adverse traffic, they should too. And it's never people who have to go to work that yell at us.

    Yo, Astro, come to Houston and block one of OUR intersections. You will WISH the police would come and take you to jail.

    You jerks are the reason many motorists think that ALL cyclists are inconsiderate, rude, drugged out thugs...you are 1% of the cycling population, but the cause of 99% of the bad feelings against cyclists.

    But, again, you are welcome to bring your thug tactics to Houston. Folks in Houston know how to deal with punks.

    Not long ago, I saw an interview with a young woman whose car had been trapped by a mob of these guys. She couldn't move forward. She couldn't move back. When she tried to get away, they began pounding on her car, doing lots of damage...takes a real man to get together with two hundred other guys and terrorize a woman.

    You "didn't know" your 'bro party was offensive? Some frat boys at Texas A & M thought it was funny to give a party where they could wear an afro wig, and swig 40 oz. bottles of malt liquor. They called it their "Pimps and Ho's Party". Their dates wore Afro wigs...their idea of looking like a 'ho.

    The REAL 'bros from the A & M. football team let the frat boys know EXACTLY what would happen if there was another such party. The frat boys hid under their beds, and haven't been seen since...they are about as "brave" as the critical mass bunch. Cool to act racist until a real brother catches you at it...then its time to be a little whiny boy again.

    Yeah.

    Guess i know why no one worth mentioning would be stupid enough to live there, eh?

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand...

    Seriously, what's a minute or two of your time, isn't that the time you're supposed to allot to that sort of adversity? I really take offense to you calling me a thug, and I don't plan to visit or live in Houston, ever.

    But who are you? What do you have to do with Philly Mass? Nothing.

    Plus, what's to do about my "thug tactics" in Houston? Are they going to beat me down, run me over? use worse thug tactics?
