The warm-fuzzy side of Critical Mass

Posted by on May 25th, 2005 at 11:39 pm

I know there are a lot of folks who don’t like what they think Critical Mass stands for. But while you’ve been making judgements the movement has really changed. This is a great article from the San Fran. Chronicle that tells a similar story to what in my opinion is happening here in Portland.

An excerpt:

Over the past decade, bicyclists have transitioned from traffic-snarling outsiders to pillars of civic life. They have merged smoothly with the mainstream and…the movement is graduating to a new phase.
