CCM even has its own band - the Polkaholics.  Each year they schedule a FREE show for our loyal riders; January 28, they will be at Lincoln Lanes playing their own brand of punk/speed metal polka. Bundle up for a great ride that ends with polka music and bowling.


"Critical Mass!  Criticial Mass!  Get on your bikes and kick some ass!" ~ Critical Mass Polka


Chicago Critical Mass bike rides start from Daley Plaza (Dearborn & Washington) at 5:30 p.m. (Leave around 6 p.m.) on the last Friday of each month, regardless of season or weather. They are free and fun. All you have to do is show up with your bike. The rides are family- and pet-friendly.

A Critical Mass is created when the group of riders take back the streets of our city. The right of the people to assemble is guaranteed in the Constitution and Critical Mass helps people remember that right. The Mass itself has no political agenda though -- no more than the people of any other community do. Critical Mass is open to all and it welcomes all riders to join in a celebration of riding bicycles. Why? Because bikes are fun!

Come join this fabulous parade on bikes!

Note: Chicagoland Critical Mass rides can attract zero to thousands of participants.

Good ride. Who knew a Polka band that plays Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple.

Had to bail early as I felt  hint of being sick yesterday so don't want to push it.

I'll definitely be at the Polka concert, but may not be able to make the ride.
