HEY critical mass people.  If there is someone in charge Tell everyone in Critical Mass to stay on the  right side of the road. I have almost gotten hit WHILE ON MY BIKE, not attending critical mass, on my way home, by some bonehead critical mass rider GOING THE WRONG WAY DOWN THE ROAD heading right toward me.  I won't say how i feel about critical mass, but jesus christ, stay out of the way of other cyclists who choose not to attend this event.

While non-bikes are sometimes annoying or nominally dangerous, I think there's definitely a place for the on the mass. However, I don't believe gas/electric powered equipment follows the spirit of the mass.

btw, is the Chicago Critical Mass website down?

See you tonight!

I don't think anything powered belongs in the mass!

I should have posted earlier about the the Gas -o- holic bikes  that were present on the last Mass. I believe in inclusiveness but there should be a limit. I thought the whole point of Cm or one of them was clean air. I told one of the Guys His ride sucked . He told me to put my nose to his tali pipe. Everyone else to my knowledge was just enjoying the parade . what's your thoughts on this.
