Safe Mode: On
Critical Mass bike ride for June in DC

On June 3, DC's Critical Mass bike ride took to the streets with 50+ riders, going to the White House, the Capitol, back to the White House, then to Georgetown and back to Dupont Circle.

There was an incident nears the Washington Monument where a careless driver struck and bent the back wheel of one of the last bikes, but another rider on a high bike was able to straighten the "tacoed" or laterally bent into a taco shape wheel enough for the rider of the damaged bike to finish the ride.

In Georgetown, bikers encountered severe car congestion essentially blocking traffic and had to flow between these cars like water over rocks, getting thumbs-up and looks of envy from some motorists trapped in their vehicles which could not do the same to get them home.

Critical Mass in DC rides the first Friday of every month.
