Something that resembles a Critical Mass ride is afoot.

It seems that there is a group of people trying to start up a Critical Mass ride here in the Wrightsville Beach/Wilmington area. People have tried this before and the last attempt was a couple of years ago. From what I remember, the first ride drew 25-30 people: adults, kids, hipsters, commuters, roadies, mountain bikers and others. It was a good time and a nice feeling riding with that many people on some of Wilmington’s busiest streets. But as time passed, 4 months or so, the numbers spiraled down to a mere handful of cyclists. So, like I said, there is another attempt to breathe life into the concept. The details:

Meet at the Wrightsville Beach Harris Teeter parking lot. February 29, ride starts at 5:30pm. Everyone is welcome. Ride whatever bike you want. This is not a roadie ride or a club ride or anything, just a bunch of folks who want to ride their bikes.

This will be a regular event on the last Friday of every month.

Spread the word.

Wilmington CM ride of yesteryear. Can you find me?

Oh man, I'm bummed we'll be in Baltimore on Friday. Keep us posted on the next. Is that you in the picture behind the gal who looks like she's saluting?:)

Ah, too bad, but there's always next time. Seems like it's going to be a monthly thing.

Yes, that is me behind you saluting. Why are you saluting? Safe travels.
