Critical Mass in the media: the good and the bad
Hi again everyone,
A couple of things I came across this morning:
On YES channel, which is apparently a sports channel dedicated to the Yankees (why not), a profile of Time's Up, a NYC advocacy group that's been closely involved with Critical Mass in that city. It's remarkably positive:
On the less happy side, there was violence at the last Critical Mass in Seattle.
Report from the Oregonian:
(with links to other reports)
Reaction and eyewitness accounts on the Seattle cycling community blog:
Some of you may recall a similar incident in San Francisco a couple of months back. I think this is a god reason to encourage a limited police presence at the Mass rides. It keeps things like this from happening in the first place, and if they do happen, we've got hte benefit of professional witnesses. I liked what happened during the ride in May - two officers on bicycles, riding with the group, and a van with no lights or sirens bringing up the rear.
Speaking of which, can anyone let me know how the last two rides have been?
