bike ride

we had a great critical mass on friday, rode all over town for about an hour before the cops told us we were going to be charged with disorderly conduct if we didn't start using the bike lanes and stopping at traffic signals. They didn't want to ticket the whole crowd, and there were no organizers, so they "let us off" if we promised to obey the traffic laws. It got dark, we din;t have headlamps, and we knew they'd ticket us steep for that, so we called it a day and all went home happy.
