Protect our rights! Great job to you all and thanks to Councilwoman Rose Mendez.
As an aside, they are trying to ban tatoos and piercings in Suffolk County. The only thing that will be left to do legally is - GO SHOPPING! Enjoying your imperialism?

Why do these people find it necessary to ride their bikes in packs of 50 or more. Can't they just get together with a few friends and go for a ride. What a bunch of sheep.

I've recently been diagnosed with asthma and have ridden to work on a bicycle for over 25 years
The treatment of Critical Mass by the N.Y.P.D. these past several years is a disgrace to us as citizens of a great city and country.

Hey,at least the NYPD does something about critical mass.Here in Seattle the police turn a blind eye to them.People have a right to ride their bikes but critical mass has a political agenda,they are not out for a leisurely ride,they are protesters who must follow the rules like everybody else.

I wish the police in San Francisco would crack down on these bicyclists.
I'm getting sick and tired of Critical Mass disrupting public transportation and traffic every month.

Ya, well when you get stuck in a trolly for an hour because a bunch of yahoos want to clog an intersection every month so that nobody can move then you would feel differantly.

Every one of these hoodlums should be at the very least ticketed. If they want to be treated just like cars, then they should be treated just like cars. When they run red lights (which they advocate doing), they should be ticketed.

Make sure you don't roll -- even just a bit -- through that next red, Jack.

Why would you assume that I would do such a thing? It's illegal and where I come from, you can be ticketed for that sort of thing.

James Jandelli never worked a day in his life. He has asthma from smoking doobies for the last 40 years!

Jandelli you are a no good hippie freakster. You have an axe to grind with the NYPD ever since you were ticketed for public defecation on Fordham Road in 1979. You're not fooling anyone.

If Jandelli had just kept the BIG "C" penny and cashed it in he could afford to buy bikes for all the Kiddie Poos in the city. He is a bitter bitter man.
