Ride and Critical Mass for Friday, 27 April

Rode into work and tore down the servers ready for moving, then went to Critical Mass. Quite a nice long ride, there was a young girl of 9 or so there with her parents. She looked like she was having a great time, and lasted all the way along, I think. It was amazing how drivers who looked like they were suddenly going to overtake stopped and waited as soon as they saw her. Also, all the buses were corking behind us, which was interesting - it meant there was a line entirely closed off for us, and the buses seemed to be deliberately keeping it clear. A police car showed up halfway through, his only comment was "please ride in single line and only take up one lane, but you're allowed to take the full lane"; he followed us for a block or so then that was the last I saw of him.

Headed home afterwards to an early night...

Hey Steve..
Wishing you a speedy recovery!! This is the mom of the 9 year old girl you wrote about...her name is Taylor and she's a keen cyclist..it was a trial run for her and considering she hadn't been on her bike since last fall, we all think she did pretty darn well!
