I'm entertaining the idea of joining tonight's CM. I have read about all the negatives about the event so I'm all okay with kind of info. I know it can be loud and aparty like atmosphere. I know about the drama and stuff(that's to be expected when you have so many young people) but I'm only there so I could experience it at least once.
1) What I want to know is how many riders are usually present?
2) How are the police? Are they gung ho about red-lights/stop signs? I've seen some videos and I'm surprised they actually provide some sort of escort, lol. Are they a more hands off approach and simply makes sure no ones start any ****(vandalism, assault, theft, etc)?
3) How long are the rides, usually? Like, how many miles should I expect to complete the ride?
This is my first CM, so any help would be appreciated!
