I did my first Chicago Critical Mass last Friday, and, man that was fun! How often do you get to take over 3 out of 4 lanes on Western Ave. with bikes! It started downtown, and we went through Greektown, Pilsen, and Chinatown. I’m not sure why this was so satisfying, but it was awesome to get the big semis to blow their horns. That got everyone cheering. Surprisingly, most of the drivers were not that upset when they got blocked in by bikes. Then again, we were at the front of the pack. They may have gotten a little more agitated after sitting there for 10 minutes. CCM is always the last Friday of the month, meeting at Daley Plaza. Happy Friday!
