Chris Drew Memorial Ride
Chris Drew Memorial RideSubmitted by thestevenlane on Tue, 2012-05-22 21:19.
Designed by Steven Lane for the May, 2012 Ride
Chris was a fixture at Critical Mass for many years, often screen printing copies of the month's route on site. In recent years he fought an important legal battle over free speech and recording police.
In 2009+2010 Chris lead September rides to the American Indian Center where we were greeted with music and art and food.
I propose we again do a Chris route to honor the wonderful man and his contributions to Critical Mass, art and freedom.
The map is planned and printed, and the Derailleur Chris Drew memorial edition is heartbreakingly beautiful. The American Indian Center and friends of Chris Drew contacts have been contacted (though we have no confirmation yet if there'll be anything awaiting the mass).
Route is under 17 miles, in a Native American inspired stepwise design. Ends at the Uptown Multi-Cultural Art Center (aka American Indian Center), 1630 W Wilson Ave. If the AIC is closed or full some may want to continue on to honorary Chris Drew Way (aka Morse Ave).
