Wicker Park has intermittently had an official unofficial critical mass for many years, historically from Polish Triangle on first Fridays.  To the best of my knowledge though, this hasn't gelled in sizeable form in many months.

Now living for foreseeable months in Bucktown, I'd like to reboot WPCM immediately. With years of experience creating the magical north side critical mass on Second Fridays from Senn Park, I've got reason to believe we can make something great happen in hipsterville.

I've selected a new date and place and time to try to optimize turnout.  So PLEASE COME to the WICKER PARK CRITICAL MASS REBOOT INAUGURAL RIDE!  

Or for masshaters, call it the Third Fridays Wicker Park Fountain Happy Happy Evening Fun Ride!!!

I am a resitor of FB, so can help with your friend count,  but plan to come out to this ride. Thanks for making this happen.

Thanx!  The short facebook URL for WPCM (had to be >=5 chars) is now

I just was #25 to like the page Andrew!

Sounds good. I'd imagine the ride will leave Wicker Park at some point, since the neighborhood is relatively small and a ride around around would be fairly short.

No route firmly planned yet.  I know the area fairly well, so I may come up with some ideas by ride time.  But I was hoping someone who knows the neighborhood REALLY well would show up with ideas, and we'd play some by ear and consensus.  Though I tend to plan rides in detail, Critical Masses traditionally are more organic.  Works either/both/hybrid ways.   
I'll be ridecasting as always, so stragglers can catchup using

Has there been a decided-upon map yet?

I've created a Wicker Park Critical Mass Facebook page.  Come like it please, since when we get 25 fans it gets a clean URL.

Sounds fun!

@Kevin: Just show up and have fun! Don't forget to bring your bike. :-)
