Critical Mass August 2010

Kind of a crazy ride.  It spread out veeeery thin and consequently there were altercations with drivers at like every intersection, and a lot of cyclists mixing with the cars, which is no no good.    A stressful second half of the ride.

Here’s a link to a video of a cyclist who was arrested seemingly for no reason.  A driver apparently pushed his car over one (or two?) bikes,  exited his vehicle  to confront the cyclists, police arrived and (surprise!)  a cyclist was arrested while the driver who had parked his car on top of the bikes was ignored by the CPD.   Gotta love Chicago.

The pics show when we took two bridges in Greektown —  one Jackson, the other dunno.    And then our ending at Recreation Drive and the golf course.
