ALERT!: Critical Mass Bike Ride Tonight
If you’re caught in traffic early this evening because a seemingly infinite number of of bike riders are crossing the intersection, blame Critical Mass.
Critical Mass is the monthly massive bike ride which takes several thousand bicyclists on a chaotic ride throughout the city the last Friday of every month.
With the weather warming up, this should be a much larger turnout than the previous winter months. So be prepared to wait a long time if you get caught.
The “Mass” starts downtown from Daley Center at 5:30 PM.
If you do get stuck, just put the car in park, recline your seat and wave to all the happy bike riders screaming “Happy Friday!”
