Happy holidays! For the adventurous Scene-Free folks.
Come work off your Thanksgiving overindulgences. I'm heading to Critical Mass this Friday. Looking for compadres. Critical Mass is a fun, cycle-centric event that raises awareness about biking as an alternative mode of transportation. No need to be political to participate (promise!). Depending on the weather, there are anywhere from a few dozens to (literally) thousands of cyclists. I've participated in many Masses (year-round) and always had a lot of fun. Come join me. We'll stop for dessert afterwards and talk about organizing other outdoor scene-free events.

And if you don't have a bike, consider renting one via Divvy (the city's bikesharing program).
Hope to see you there.
PS--There will likely be MANY people there. Note the specific corner (above) where we'll meet.
