Critical Mass "Grows Up"

"I'd say about 90 percent of the city believes in what they are doing," says a police officer riding behind the some 1,500 bikers during the Critical Mass bike ride last month. The loosely organized event has grown over the past 10 years that a police escort is routine, he says. What is different now is "widespread acceptance ... even affection," he adds, noting applause from nearby cafes, honks from bus drivers and cabbies, and cheers from residents.

People love critical mass when it rides by. Glad the cops see that.

The only people who seem to get really annoyed are the ones in Hummers and fancy German cars.
