Critical Manners Seattle: Friday Oct 12, Westlake, 5:30

As <”>promised, we’ll be gathering at Westlake, 5:30 tonight for a Critical Manners ride. Look for Matt McClung when you arrive. We’ll probably leave Westlake around 6:00, actual manners observed will be negotiated at the gathering and maybe we’ll pick a snazzier name next time around. This is a great chance to get out and have some non-confrontational interactions with traffic and pedestrians, and a great ride for anybody who’s ever been put off by traditional Critical Mass tactics. I’ll report back after the ride.


Heya—Not sure if I can make it tonight but I am excited about this (identify with the line “you’ve never seen a bigger bunch of nerds in your life” much? yes, that’s me) and look forward to participating in the future.

I’ve ridden in Critical Mass once or twice—maybe 2 years ago? it was a little smaller here, then, as far as I know—and the thing that killed me was that I was the only person who’d actually answer the questions of passers-by. I enjoyed it mostly, but am very pro-signalling, stopping and not-getting-killed on my commute.


I am soooo excited that you are having a Critical Manners ride tonight.

We’re riding here in SF, even though it’s raining cats & dogs.
