this is going to be a short report. i just wanted to say that last nigt's critical mass rocked!
there were well over 1,000 people there and we took up a lot of space. the theme this month
according to fliers passed out) was the people of NYC univiting the Republican National
Convention which meets here one year from yesterday.
we took off at around 7:30 with the mobile sound system leading the way. we went south to 14street,
west to 6th avenue, north to 59 and around the circle and then south to Madison Sqaure Garden where
we dismounted and the bikes went up. the republicans are holding their convention here next year,
thus the reason for our subsequent ride around the garden. we then proceeded south to 23, went west
to the West side highway and took that (my favorite part). we proceeded south to the FDR, took the
tunnel (very loud) and proceeded to the Brooklyn Bridge. I turned off at that point but heard
people took the bridge, then rode to the manhattan bridge and took that back! rumours had it that
some people even went over the williamsburg bridge too!

there were tons of people taking pictures. please post them here as the scene was very lively
and vibrant. also, any ideas on how many people were there?

awesome mass!
