Critical Mass has two happenings in New York City:
The last Friday of the Month. Meet at Union Square at 7:00pm
the other ride is in Brooklyn, the 2nd Friday of each month. 2 locations to meet at, Grand Army Plaza (Park Slope) and the Base of the Williamsburg Bridge (Brooklyn side) at 7:00pm
Sometimes these two rides meet up and sometimes…well you know.
There is also a First Friday ride in Manhattan, 7pm Union Square.
Also want to give a shout out to Staten Island:
