Lets get this started…

So we are taking a beating at Critical Mass here in NYC and we need to talk about it. Better than myspace…I found ning. This is a cool free service that allows you to build your own social network just like Myspace, only not owned by Fox mogul, Rupert Murdoch…yet. I created nyc critical mass ning as a place where like minded individuals can discuss critical mass, how to change it, what to try, what to avoid…etc.

Right now the site is private and people need to be invited to join. My goal is to build a network of people, like myspace, to specifically talk about nyc critical mass.

If you would like to be involved goto the ning site and join up.

I know this site is rough right now, but I will work on improving it.

Lets get talkin.

They interviewed Austin about being the 2006 NACC Champion.


I’m getting the impression that the 2008 Naccc is being held in Chicago. Goto Bikeliker to vote on the logo you like best.

Bike Month Critical Mass as advertised by the DOT

Well its coming to the end of Bike Month and what better way to celebrate it then to go the monthly bike ride, critical mass. This is where you can ride your bike in a group and get harassed by the NYPD who STILL has nothing better to do then criminalize bike riding. Tonight was no different.

About 200 people showed up, about 150 more then last months drizzly ride where we all hopped on the subway and headed downtown to avoid the cops.

This time the ride left Union Square and headed down 5th Ave. where they were surrounded by tons of cops. This month the cops officially gave out the parading without a permit ticket…Happy Bike Month.

The group split up and 50 people went to Washington Square park to reconvene, another group of about 25 went to Madison Park. Madison was surrounded by cops and people were affraid to leave.

I heard rumors that the ride linked up and a group of 50 rode without harrassment for at least an hour. More info to come.

Saturday is Bike Fetish Day.

Hosted by the City Reliquary and there will be an Alleycat Race leaving from Bicycle Fetish Day…
