Report from the June, 2007 Ride:

Saw this on the CCM email list:

From: Jonathan Markel

I just finished with uploading the geotagged photos and posted a link to them on my blog.

Let me know what you think and feel free to send the link on to other interested folks.

June 2007: The Movie



Report from the June, 2007 Ride:

The following links you to a series of videos I made from the June 2007 ride. Pardon all my editorializing in Parts 1 & 2, but I wanted to give the uninitiated a look into the Chicago Critical Mass experience, particularly all the cool bike happenings that spin off of our monthly ride. If you don't have the time for that, at least check out Part 3 - it’s a MUST SEE!

Chicago Critical Mass June 2007 p1 08:42
What's Critical Mass? It's a global cycling movement that has people all over the world gathering in hundreds of cities the LAST FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH. In Chicago, we meet by a huge Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza, Washington & Clark at 5:30pm. I start the video by talking about Critical Mass and showing off some fliers I received before the ride started: World Naked Bike Ride pix, POOL TOUR 2007 video, Critical Mass - it's not just a bike ride -
get connected!

Chicago Critical Mass June 2007 p2 09:52
As the graphic designer behind the look and feel of this website, I had to plug the redesign of chicagocriticalmass.org. Just like the ride, the site is now open to the public! However, unlike the ride, you will have to register :(~ The good news is creating a login will allow you to submit ride reports and upload fliers, so do it bloggy-style online and add your voice to the conversation. Part 2 then has us follow the ride out of the Loop and take it south through Little Italy.

Chicago Critical Mass June 2007 p3 10:00
MUST SEE CLIP! This was the best part of the June 2007 Chicago Critical Mass bike ride. Todd Allen has the most badass mobile sound system on the ride, and you can definitely see how music makes the bike party as we head north on California.

Chicago Critical Mass June 2007 p4 09:18
As the June Ride winds down, we take a moment to consider the possibility that Chicago's Critical Mass Movement will go into retirement after the 10th Anniversary Ride on Friday September 28. Personally, I'm shocked that people are falling for the Grand Finale Pranksters; c'mon people, YOU ARE THE RIDE! YOU ARE THE MOVEMENT!! No one can pull the plug on that, so start thinking for yourselves and get involved in growing Critical Mass: invite your friends, convince a coworker to bike to work on Fridays, spread the bike love! We end at the after-party and hear a story about things that go bump in the night from a woman named Lucky ;^)

till next month ~ steven


Photo Bread Crumbs from the June Mass



Report from the June, 2007 Ride:

For the June CCM I mounted a camera on my bike and took about 450 photos along the route. They have all been placed on Google Maps here.

Make certain to zoom in as more photos will become visible at the higher zoom levels. Rolling you mouse over the marker displays a preview image and clicking brings up a larger version.

I am almost finished with a how-to on this project which I will post on my blog tonight or tomorrow. My blog is Random Ranting from an Unarmed American.

If you find a photo that you like and want a high res copy of shoot me an email with the image number (IMG_XXXX.jpg) at jon.markel [at] gmail.com.

Thanks for a great ride.

Better than average ride in June



Report from the June, 2007 Ride:

The June 2007 ride was one of the better rides, and a couple of things contributed to that, I think.

Those in front rode slowly – and as a result we didn’t lose the mass-iness.

We stopped (or were stopped) by red lights frequently, and that helped keep the mass together as well.

I think it’s better to stop more often but for shorter periods that to wait until we get all strung out, everybody yelling “Mass Up!” and then waiting at a light for two or three cycles before proceeding.

I didn’t see any incidents or behavior that warranted attention.

Nor did I realize we stopped at Humboldt Park! (I just follow the crowd, not the map.) So I kept going. Slowly, the group diminished and as individuals and small groups peeled off. Me, I exited about Webster and Halsted and headed home.

Anybody have an idea how many riders we had?
