This is NOT Critical manners,this is Critical Mass. For 30 days out of the month, bullies in SUV's push us off the road, on the last Friday we take it back. I have ridden with Critical Mass DC since it's current incarnation began in 2002, and we've never had anyone seriously hurt that I can recall. We HAVE had a couple bikes deliberately rammed by SUV drivers (this is an SUV thing, small car drivers rarely act like that) over the years, and caught one drunk driver (cops were more interested in his beery breath than his broken window), but that's about it.
I did miss the mid 1990's rides that used to go to Beach Drive, something I would love to see happen again, given efforts over the years, even by the Park Service as well as so many others, to make the weekend car-free zones there permanent.

How very democratic of you, Luke.
Question to everyone else: am I correct in looking at this footage and understanding that the DC Critical Mass ride still makes no effort at all to comply with the law, or ride safely? I know a load of people who'd like to support the general Critical Mass aims, but aren't interested in blowing lights and swarming cars every chance they get.
