Hi Everyone Again,

Sorry for the delay (been back in Montreal) and Happy (Oil!) Independence Day

Just a quick note to say that for any interested in taking a larger role in organizing the Critical Mass bike ride we'll be having a meeting on Tuesday the 16th at 6pm at Local Sprouts,

And the ride will be on Friday the 26th
I'll send one more email to the whole list with a link to the Facebook Page, or you can email me directly with any questions 
happy ridin'
alex

Would it be proper to conduct such a ride in the honor and memory of David LeClair, the cyclist who lost his life in the recent Trek Across Maine ride for the American Lung Association?

Hello there!

My name is Alex and I just moved back from Montreal, where we used to do "Critical Mass" bike rides at the end of each month, where a whole bunch of bikers would all go out in the city together and bike together, taking up a whole lane and being able to socialize on black top without having to worry about cars or huddle on the margins

It only lasts a half to a whole hour or so (especially in a small city like portland) and we contact the city first and cause very little inconvenience to anyone, while we promote the healthy and fun lifestyle of urban biking

Then afterwards we'd often set up a projected movie in a park

I'd be happy to organize this if a good bunch of people (at least 20 or so, and maybe way more!) felt like doing it, it doesn't take much work and is a great feeling of freedom (closest thing possible to flying around with your friends like a bird I think)

So if any of you live/bike in the portland area and are interested please get in touch!
alex briggs,
