Last week I moved back to Chicago from L.A. and was treated to the BEST MASS EVER!
Where do I begin? I pulled into Daley Plaza at 6:05 and simply could not believe how crowded it was. About a mile or two into the ride, not long after it was hijacked, I got a head count of over 625. 625!!!!! Given that there were some people in front of me, and that there were some clumps that I undercounted, we probably had close to 700 riders. And three dogs. It was a festive ride with almost no confrontation - at least I didn't see any. And just when I thought it couldn't get better, we descended down to the Congress [Eisenhower] Expressway to join the traffic jam for a mile or so. The euphoria of the ride led some to strip naked in the glee of the moment.
