    nyc: tonight

    Paula Revere's Ride – August 24, 7pm*
    “One if by chartered jet, two if by S.U.V.”
    Greene Dragon and TIME'S UP! will begin their historic ride on “horse-cycles” down Lexington Avenue, alerting New Yorkers “The Republicans are coming!”* The ride will stop for a call to “Liberty” at Madison Square Garden and then continue to the Counter-RNC Kickoff Party at Webster Hall.
    Ride starts at Sherman Statue, SE corner of Central Park.
    Come in red, white, and blue.
    Bring your bike.

    I was walking home and saw a good 15-20 cyclists riding northbound on Madison at 42nd around 7pm... looked like people were having fun.

    I was more into the ride than the message ( being the ultra lefty that I am ). All in all it was pretty good, though it was slow at first ( my little brake away was suppressed by some kid on a fixe, I thought I thought the ride was about liberty and freedom ) and it did pick up speed as it got further down town. I think the ride would be more fun if the little socially cohesive leaders were more open and free about there demonstrations instead of putting them self's in such a proprietary stance over the demonstrators. I thought about all this as I zipped off down park avenue and heeded back towards Roosevelt island.
    I carried it around with me for days and days.. playing little games like not looking at it for a whole day and then.. looking at it. to see if I still liked it. I DID!

    Hello all, I have been reading this forum a lot recently, so I figured I may as well register and post.

    I was thinking about taking part in this tonight, but it just didn't strike me as all that fun/interesting/subversive/etc....

    On my way home today, I did see several 'horses' riding over the bridge that made me reconsider for a moment, but laziness won out. I definitely plan to do the Critical Mass this Friday though, as well as some of the other bike events centered around Union Square, as I work about 3 blocks away.
