Critical mass ride for Friday, 25 January

Met up for Critical Mass and most of the usual faces appeared along with a surprising number of new faces (for this time of year). There was also a radio reporter there taking interviews who also came along for the ride - I think possibly the first reporter to cover the ride who did so, kudos to him for doing it on such a cold night. Around 12 people showed up in the end:



We did a route downtown and in order to try to get some heat built up rode up the multi storey car park on University Avenue by the hospital. Of course, that meant riding back down again...

Took a photo of my glasses on the way home to show how severely fogged up they'd become:



Needless to say they were pretty useless by this point!

Steve, Do you have any idea what agency the reporter was from? I'd love to hear what the reporter thought of you guys out in the cold riding around.
