Critical Manners tonight!
Forecast is looking a bit rainy, but slap a set of fenders on and you should be good to go! Tonight is the night! Meet across from the Central Library at 5:45. Ride starts at 6. * We’ll ride a bit slower to ensure that no one is dropped and that the Mass stays a mass. * We’ll stop at all red lights. If a light turns red mid-mass, the riders who made it through should pull over to wait for those who were caught at the light. * We’ll only take up one lane, at most two, if it is a major thoroughfare. * We’ll signal our turns. * We’ll be inclusive–sadly, cliques happen, but more than anything, CM/CM encourages cyclists of all kinds to attend, and hopes to foster an attitude of celebration to all things two-wheeled and pedaled. Our whole point is to be a part of traffic, to be a visible and positive example of the cooperation that can exist between cars and bicycles if people generally respected not only laws, but each other.
