Another Critical Mass bike ride is planned for this Friday night. We talk with organizers, and consider both the goals of – and concerns raised by – these occasional mass bike rides.

The movement was originally founded in San Francisco to draw attention to how unfriendly that city’s streets were to cyclists. Here in Houston, it’s caused traffic jams, there’s stories of cyclists yelling at drivers, and drivers yelling at cyclists. So what’s the goal of the event here? Is it achieving its goals? Is it safe?
