15th Anniversary of the Chicago Critical Mass

The September 2012 Chicago Critical Mass ride also happens to be the 15th anniversary of the first gathering of CCM.
 We all gathered in Daley Plaza as the starting point of the ride.
 CCM tshirts were handed out to the lucky first 700 or so people.

Shortly after we began we came to a halt. Just enough time to get a picture of this Penny Farthing and its owner.

Here is a video of the whole CCM crossing Clark at Webster.

I took the below picture just before the end of the line of bike came.  At the end of the line was a few Chicago Police on bicycles. And one of them saw me corking the street and told me I didn't have the authority to do that. :)

The end of the ride on Kinzie.
The ride was approximately 17 miles long. My mileage from the car and back to the car after the ride came to 23.17 miles. That was a very enjoyable bike ride.
