    Temecula CA 2nd Critical Mass.



    Rode 20 miles to get there, and the ride was somewhere around that distance as well, mostly uphill.

    I have no idea what the audio is, mine doesn't work. There were quite a few fixed/ss riders. I think 50-60 people showed up. Just thought I'd share.

    p.s. At like 9:05 you can see my blue-ish headlight, then at precisely 9:17 you can see when I eat **** running into someones rear tire trying to avoid the merry-go-round stoplight nonsense. Then you see me at 9:35 on the side of the road fixing my handlebars. Good times.

    This looked fun!
    Have you been to the one here in SF?
    You haven't gone to a real crazy CM until you've gone to the one here. It's where CM was born!
    At least a few hundred cyclists show up.
    We are escorted by cops on motorcycles.
    We get people riding crazy bikes and have crazy people riding bikes.
    Everyone makes a sh*t load of noise.
    It's insane.

    looks nothing like the critical masses I've seen, note that I said seen and not ridden in; I'm far too much of an accomplished elitist to mix with your type... maybe you guys should car pool to a city with a bigger critical mass.

    Though given that it was Temecula I'm surprised I didn't see any dirt bikes in the mix, have you guys been trading them and the lift kits on your trucks in for pista concepts with deep v's ?

    I'm not sure I'd do Critical Mass in Temecula, given how horrible the drivers there are.

    I know, no one is aware of bicyclists at all, except for snobby roadies. There were only two incidents where someone threw a bottle at us, and some guy on a lifted truck(see FAUX's post) sped up and burnt out the tires leaving us to ride through a ton of rubber smoke.
