Catching up today on some interesting items that I somehow missed over the couple of weeks. Here is a report on July's Critical Mass ride from Will at NYTurf:

The police moved into traffic with their scooters, swerving between cars and bikes, without their sirens on. It's really hard to understand what they want you to do because frankly it seems they really have no clue about what they are doing. One of the first people they stopped was riding in the middle of traffic, surrounded by a hundred bikes and some cars. They ticketed him for not riding in the bike lane. This of course is not ticketable when there are dozens to a hundred other people in the bike lane.
