Last night’s 12-mile (+detour) Critical Mass ride through East Little Havana, Allapattah, Wynwood, Little Haiti, Midtown, and Edgewater drew several hundred riders, the most I’ve seen in the last five months. Not sure what brought so many people out on a 50-degree evening, but despite several wipeouts the first ride of 2011 had a damn good vibe, especially with the Bicycle Sound System (still badly in need of a nickname — the Studenboom? the Dauster?) banging out dance jams with not a single technical difficulty. The marriage of Mass and music was made in heaven, and judging from last night the honeymoon promises to last a helluva lot longer than most blessed unions. Cheers to that.
Here are a few photos from the ride.
