The Wheelsucker Does the Baltimore Halloween Critical Mass Ride

A very amusing review of Baltimore's Critical Mass. Some choice quotes:

"What a BLAST!!!! "

"The Wheelsucker noted that NO ONE was wearing team kit and in fact NO ONE was wearing lycra; most but not all wore helmets. And there were some GREAT costumes."

"... but much like the city of Annapolis needing to actually connect the short lengths of “cycling paths to nowhere” such that one could actually ride somewhere in Annapolis on a bike path, the Wheelsucker is not expecting this during his lifetime. "

" Well, most people were clapping and cheering as the group rode by, and when we did hear car horns they were typically short tapping blasts that suggested support rather than frustration and anger."

"Many – perhaps most – of the group actually used their bikes for transportation all or most of the time, not just for training and recreational racing as the Wheelsucker and most of his team mates do. It occurred to the Wheelsucker that this “parallel universe” of cycling was probably just as credible – maybe more so – than his own. "

"The alley cat race was a race to various locations in downtown Baltimore."
