North Side Critical Mass at Young Lincoln statue

October 11, 2013 from 7pm to 11pm
THE monthly (2nd Fridays) north side gathering of cyclists. Winds a dozen miles-ish, ending with food+drink. Well-attended. Bring friends, tunes, bells, costumes, cameras. Meet under Young Lincoln Statue at Ridge and Thorndale.  Not just for Northsiders, see it as a second big monthly mass, sometimes topping 100 riders.See More
