Revenge of the Bicyclists: Critical Mass Hits the Road
This article (registration required) is for anyone who's ever taken their lives in their own hands and ridden a bicycle in today's vicious traffic, encountering the "motor vehicle first" attitudes of one's fellow citizens. Critical Mass, a monthly ride which originated some years ago in (where else?) San Francisco, from whence it spread to 300 or so other cities. Of course, the original is the still, apparently, the biggest and most radical, and herein lies the value of the article: the differing perspective of those who don't believe that bicycles should have to yield to cars. Happy riding, readers.
