Critical Mass Fort Lauderdale Happens Tomorrow: What You Need to Know
Via Fort Lauderdale Critical Mass
At last month's Critical Mass Fort Lauderdale -- the once-per-month, 14-mile ride through the city -- one cop tackled a cyclist and another officer knocked a rider off his bike after ramming him with his motorcycle, according to the biker.
This month? Hopefully not that.
Tomorrow, the monthly event to raise awareness of cyclists' rights takes place at 7 p.m., but not much more has been released at the moment, perhaps to avoid more mishaps like last month. (Ed. note: A previous version of this article contained incorrect information about the route found on Meetup.com)
According to James Musters, "There will be no route publicly published prior to the ride but the police will be on hand to help facilitate the ride. Second, I understand there are several other events happening in the park this Friday night. We have been advised there will be limited parking in the park, but not in the usual location. It is suggested that locals ride their bikes to the park, or park elsewhere and ride in."
The monthly journey is meant be done at a leisurely pace -- about 12 miles per hour for the 14-mile trek.
Be safe out there, folks.
