Southern Hospitality

I am in Houston for the weekend, so I was able to attend Houston’s Critical Mass ride yesterday.  I talked to the shop guy and girl at Houston Fixed Gear about the ride and they were really friendly and told me to expect a crowd of around 400.  All varieties of cyclists turned out for this ride.  The ride was massive, the route was interesting, and the cyclist-motorist interactions were sometimes chaotic.  Someone was arrested, another got three tickets, one person was hit by a car, and some angry drivers let the riders corking the roads know how they felt about the traffic delays.

This ride was a great way to see various neighborhoods in Houston and to share a common interest in cycling with so may different types of people.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
