Critical Mass, calms down, sort of…

I have been away, but from all accounts I got so far from people on the February NYC critical mass, things were calmer. 300 people showed up to ride after the recent court ruling with no idea how the cops would react. Many people felt the NYPD will act on their own and pay [...]

The police care about us…NOT

It was a mistake for me to suggest such nonsense. I mean people [...]

Brookyln Industires helps Recycle-a-bicycle

Tall bikes in Brooklyn Industires stores, I wonder what they will do with them when they’re done…hmmm.Brooklyn Industries is down with bikes. At first I was a little skeptical about this place with all of their ripping off popular punk logos and making it say brooklyn. Then we started seeing these stores pop up [...]
