Another Critical Mass bike ride is planned for this Friday night. We talk with organizers, and consider both the goals of â andÂ concerns raised by â these occasionalÂ mass bike rides.
The movement was originally founded in San Francisco to draw attention to how unfriendly that cityâs streets were to cyclists. Here in Houston, itâs caused traffic jams, thereâs stories of cyclists yelling at drivers, and drivers yelling at cyclists. So whatâs the goal of the event here? Is it achieving its goals? Is it safe?
