Critical Mass Brings Bike Mayhem To Chicago Streets Friday Evening
It’s the last Friday of the month everyone.
If you’re not sure of the significance, you may be one of the few Chicago drivers never caught by the thousand or so bike riders participating in Critical Mass.
Critical Mass is a monthly parade of bikes that ties up motor vehicle traffic wherever it goes on its 10-15 mile trek.
The event steps off from Daley Center at 5:30, but no one knows the route until just minutes before the ride.
Steer clear if you can. If you get caught, turn off your engine, roll down the windows and try your best to enjoy the spectacle.
