Critical Mass Messes Up Traffic Tonight
It’s the last Friday of the month.
That means bikes, bikes and more bikes with June’s Critical Mass ride.
The two-wheeled anarchy steps off at 5:30 PM from Daley Center and will wind somewhere through city streets during rush hour on a 10-20 mile route. The route is unknown until the ride begins.
Expect a larger then normal ride due to the nice weather. Expect longer than normal delays at intersections if you should happen to get caught by the hundreds of bike riders pedaling past your sorry butt stuck in traffic.
Delays can range from 10 to 30 minutes.
Much like getting caught at a railroad crossing by an extra long line of freight cars, you might be best served if you turn off your engine, call whomever you’re going to meet to alert them to your delay and enjoy the craziness of Critical Mass.
