Forwarding from media@chicagocriticalmass.org (I told her I personally fit the bill, but that we may be better served by someone more photogenic and/or younger):
Hi,
We're launching a new TV show on WTTW this spring call My Chicago.  The premise is that notable, interesting people take us on a journey with them through their Chicago, and we end up at an interesting place or event.  Our host interviews them on the way and we learn about their story and favorite spots in the city.  In this case, we'd end up at the starting point of Critical Mass, everyone hopping onto their bikes, and setting off.
What we need is the "notable guest" to take us there. So far, our guests include politicians, CEOs, architects, rappers, artists, and actors.  If there is a Critical Mass rider that fits the bill, I'd love to hear about them.  
Here's some more info: http://voices.suntimes.com/?p=147375
Thanks in advance, hope to ride with you soon!!

Nice ride last night.

Thank you Andrew Bedno for the route.

yeah i meant a route passing by.  Just an idea.  I can't do it unfor cause I'll be setting up for the halloween party.

Most cemeteries have closed gates when we're out riding; we could go by on the outside.  

Of course, the gates and fences wouldn't restrict the ghosts, would they?

What about a route that visits some cemetaries?

Starting to consider route options for Massoween this Friday. Here's a map with start (Daley Plaza), primary end (TheChainLink.org party) and all of Chicago's ghost bikes (for spookiness).

Now to plot a roundabout path, someone else please?

I've transcribed AceMann's route to Google Maps. Garwins can snag the KML there: http://goo.gl/maps/8yNgY

I also transcribed the cues (turn-by-turns): http://massup.us/ccm/n
And the whole shebang's on massup: http://massup.us/route

It's 16 miles south to the food depository, then 16 miles back N to the blinkee art thing. We'll have to keep up a pace...

A little rain on the Friday, 8/30/13 ride, but I took a few pictures before the ride started:

Yes, MikeyMike, the Mass will take place this Friday, March 29th.

"Chicago Critical Mass starts downtown Chicago, rain or shine, the LAST FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH at 5:30pm. If you're a wee bit late, don't sweat it (too much) as the Mass often takes a bit of time getting going.

The ride gathers in Daley Plaza around the Big Picasso."

(I think you'd be fine getting to Daley Plaza by 6:00--I don't think it ever leaves before 6.  But part of the fun is chatting & hanging around the plaza beforehand, checking out the other bikes.)

If you have a smartphone, point your browser at
