August Ride Civil

On Friday, I participated in Ride Civil, a monthly downtown Seattle bike ride that serves as a counterpoint to Critical Mass by having its participants follow all laws, yield to pedestrians, and try to have only positive interactions with those around them.

It is a noble goal and a good cause and August’s Ride Civil was larger than normal as well. Unfortunately it  still only attracted only about one tenth the people, brought out only about one tenth the energy, and as a result ended up not even one-tenth as much fun.

Still, riding with Ride Civil was a positive experience overall. I met some cool people, and I will probably ride again next month. But make no mistake: I’ll also ride in August’s Critical Mass.
