CM Boise is Dead

Okay...so maybe it was never really alive, but after Friday's poor excuse for a ride turnout Jackson and I decided to call it quits, which means that Boise no longer has a Critical Mass Bike Ride. But wait! It's not as sad as it might sound, because one of the main reasons we decided to go defunct (besides the fact that nobody was coming out and the few people that were were all becoming disillusioned) is because there is another downtown Boise bike ride that is actually having success and is actually shutting down some car traffic, which is awesome! It's called the Downtown Bike Shutdown and it takes place every third Saturday at 9:30 pm. Yeah, it's late, but that's the point: to become The Cruise - even if it means getting punched in the face by a meathead on a crotch rocket. Apparently bicyclists have been showing up in droves for this ride (anywhere from 75 to over a hundred) and it has only been going on for about 2-3 months. So yeah, if you want to join a group ride that's actually happening, get your bike in gear and head over to the Capitol Building on Saturday, June 18 at 9:30pm. Hopefully I'll see you there.
