I spent a few minutes yesterday complaining about controversy in the cycling world, and here I am reporting on yet more. However, this time we won’t be talking about Mr. Armstrong or anything associated with him. This time we will talk about possibly the only thing in the cycling universe that is guaranteed to generate as much noise: a Critical Mass ride.
What makes this particular run in between police and Critical Mass participants interesting is the location: Long Beach. It is interesting because Long Beach has very loudly declared its intent to become the most bicycle friendly city in the country.
