It’s the last Friday of the month, and as always that means hundreds of cyclists will ride through the streets of Miami tonight in Critical Mass. The difference this particular month is that there will very likely be a werewolf, a slutty vampiress, and, most frightening, a perfectly normal-looking Wall Street banker pedaling in the pack.
Yes, it’s Halloween weekend and the best way to gear up for our Sketchy Halloween Party at Awarehouse on Saturday night is to cobble together a costume, climb onto your bike, and roll through the streets of Miami with fake blood dripping from both corners of your mouth. The 19-mile ride through Coconut Grove, Downtown, Shenandoah, and Little Havana takes off from Government Center at 7 p.m. and ends up at the Filling Station, where there will be a contest for best costume.
To learn more, levitate over to the Miami Critical Mass Facebook group. You can also peep our photos from last year’s Halloween ride to get a sense of what you’re in for. This entourage of Mario Kart junkies took home the gold trophy in the 2010 costume race. Tonight, though, victory could be yours.
p.p.s. For those of you wondering if I ran out of corny subtitles for this post, I didn’t. “Aaahh!!! Real Massters” wouldn’t fit.
