This "Critical Mass" crap is going to backfire from what I have been reading about it.
I'm afraid it may take away our cycling rights rather then improve on them. It seems that it's just an excuse for a bunch of kids to get out and cause trouble.
Where I live (and I suspect it's the same in most areas), we have no cycling rights now. Autos are always buzzing me (including a cop once!), yelling @ me, and even throwing objects. At least one of these incidents happens to me on EVERY RIDE. What are "they" going to take away from me in terms of cycling rights? Will they shoot on sight next?

If cyclists want to get together once/month to protest our total lack of rights, I certainly have no problem with it.
