critical mass-a self criticism

Born in San Francisco, Critical Mass has been the focal point of a new vision for the future of cities. It has brought together a diverse community of cyclists and has changed the way the city looks at transportation and the use of public space.

But in San Francisco when the ride gets big as it
did last Halloween, the ride sometimes becomes a victim of its own success as newcomers to the ride find license to act destructively. In this episode, Bikescape gets together with some long time Critical Mass riders to discuss how to deal with very large group bike rides.

Listen to the podcast or
go to Bikescape in itunes

That was an excellent podcast. thanks.

I find it odd that in SF you have too many people since in Manchester there's, at most, 25 people. Hardly a critical mass.

The mentioned Bike Kitchen classes of four sessions are actually $40-80 sliding scale for members or $80 for non-members (includes a year membership). Sorry if anyone was misled into thinking they were free, and I've since updated the Chain of Events.
