i meant to put this up last week, but i had to attend to some family matters.
i wanted to share some pics i took of critical mass from a couple of fridays ago. you can be en masse with your bikey posse one second, and the next second lose all of them completely as the slow moving molasses mass moves around you like lava, hot and with determination.
also, critical mass was not just one day of celebration, but a week long event with something new each day. the last day was on sunday, a bittersweet day for me, which ended with a lovely bike ride to the beach to hear some music from musicians using the rock the bike sound system.
ade already spelled out a few reasons why she hopes not to need critical mass in a few years, and i happen to agree with her. so this will just be a picture post.
kiddical mass showed up!
what do you call a bikey marching band.
you've got mail, chevron.
sunday's closing event took place at ocean beach.
sunset. and life continuing on.
