Big Bike Nite in SD Tonite! Critical Mass, Streets For People, 30th On 30th!

It's another perfect day in SD. Why not celebrate it w/ 1,000-1,200 other cyclists at San Diego Critical Mass, one of the largest, free, monthly bike rides in the Western Hemisphere?

As per usual, the ride meets at 7pm at the "Big Fountain" next to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park.

A new pro-bike/walk/livable streets advocacy group in town, SD Streets For People, is encouraging cyclists to ride down 30th Street tonite in lieu of 30th On 30th; an event where 30th Street-based, locally-owned restaurants/pubs/taverns offer special deals on food and drinks.

Streets For People is working on bringing a Ciclovia event to San Diego. In the meantime, the group will be working to make existing events--30th On 30th, Walkabout, etc.--more friendly for pedestrians and bicyclists. 30th On 30th, an event which embraces drinking, would be safer for all people if participants opted to ride a bike rather than drive. Tonite there will be an effort to promote that idea:
