Blogger removed my post about Courteous Mass/Critical Manners!

Here it is again.
All parties are welcome to join and help bring common courtesy back to the streets. For those who need a refresher on what Courteous Mass/Critical Manners is, here is the deal:
• The ride will respect and abide the city’s traffic laws.
• Rides will be on the slow side to ensure no one is dropped and that the Mass stays a mass.
• The Mass will only take up one lane, two when necessary for safety.
• The ride will stop at red lights and stop signs. If a light turns red mid-mass, the riders who made the light should safely pull over to wait for those who were caught by the light.
• Riders are asked to signal turns, call out danger, and communicate their intentions to other riders.

The goal of these rides is to be a visible and positive example of the cooperation that can exist between cars and bicycles when people respect the laws and each other.
Also, to help those who maybe aren't used to cycling vehicularly. There are a few of us who do it all the time so we could throw you some pointers! (i.e. it is a learning experience).
So join the CM2 and help make Fort Wayne a better place for bicycles. This Friday at Lawton Park by the Softball Field near Spy Run Creek. We meet at 6:15 and ride at 6:30

Thanks to Vince for leading the ride. Heard it was a good turnout even the threat of severe weather.
