Saturday, the 2nd, was a pick up alleycat from Columbus Circle to Tompkins Square Park. The main purpose of this race was to put 4 helmet cameras on fast riders and then to project all four of these views at the same time on four seperate screens. Info on the screening will be coming up. Felipe won the race (of course) and most of the riders completed it in about 11 minutes…thats fast. Try it some time and remember there were two checkpoints.
Yatika tries on helmet. Ken (in the batman t-shirt) the race organizer. helmet cam wearers-Yatika, Cali, Pablo and Chris. The start 1 The start 2 The start 3
Sunday, the 3rd was the 3rd annual Tour De Brooklyn, hosted by Transportation Alternatives. See I don’t just post about messenger events. It was a fun ride through Brooklyn, although we did break out and go for pizza at coney island. DOT commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, spoke and went on the ride. She’s down with bikes.
Every Thursday Time’s Up has been having free screenings of environmental and bike related movies. Now its time for you to bring in yours.
This Thursday, May 31st. at the Time’s Up space in Manhattan…49 East Houston…as if you don’t know. Starts around 8:00pm
If people want to screen a short tomorrow nite, they should arrive by 6:30 to 6:45 p.m., so we can figure out technical details and make the schedule. Bike shorts should be from 1 to 10 minutes long. DVD format would be great but we can also play from a laptop and i believe we can even handle Hi8.
check here for calander of other fun Time’s Up events.

“Portland messengers fared well at the North American Cycle Courier Championships (NACCC) this past weekend in San Francisco.
Local track racer and messenger Zak Kovalicik took home the coveted â€œFixie Kingâ€ crown for having the fasted fixed gear finish in the main race. According to read Bjorn Warloe, who attended the event, it was Kovalicikâ€™s second time as fastest fixie rider.
And it was an all-Portland final in the bike polo tournament, with the team of Mason, Drew, and C Murder taking home the top prize.
A group of Portlanders used the NACCC as an excuse for a bike tour. Reader Tom Rolf rode his fixed gear down to Rickreall, Oregon (a small, country town just west of Salem) to send them off. Check out his photos here.
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.
