Critical Mass is about more than taking over the streets

It’s about meeting your neighbors and growing a community.  It’s about casual conversations – that happen to take place while on bicycles – where you learn new things about yourself and other people.  It’s about greeting people walking down the street with a smile.  They’re no longer “pedestrians.”  It’s about trying to get the car people to bike, and the bike people to bike more – mostly by shouting at them!

Chris Carlsson probably put it best.  He was, after all, one of the original dudes on the first ever Critical Mass in San Francisco.
