last month @ critical mass, someone said, “critical mass always has stops.” one of the oldtimers rebutted, “nah, that’s only been the past three months.” there were more than one person talking about how c-mass just isn’t the same…planned routes…spoke cards…douchebags telling people where we should go…etcetera. …many a disgruntled rider that day.
critical mass is in a state of evolution (into the poker ride some say). gone it seems, are the days when direction was decided at intersections. who can remember the last time critical mass ended at the duck pond? at one time mass was almost exclusively a fixed gear thing. at one time…we actually obeyed traffic laws. these days, many show up only to see what stupidity ensues.
now mind you, i’m a grand proponent of stupidity and debauchery. it’s just weird to see how these iphone toting, vegan, art posers (no offense to my vegan and artist friends [but if you have an iphone you know you're a douche]) are changing (/fucking up) the scene. evolution dammit!
if you like the bike…and can tolerate change. critical mass has a place for you.
friday. 530. unm duckpond. be there.
