polarizing events like some city's take on critical mass don't exactly help with the "cyclists are just like you" image that people in cars / decision makers need to see.

on the other hand, there's Critical Manners in Vancouver

"The Critical Manners ride originated in San Fransisco in 2007, started by Reama Dagasan as a response to the Critical Mass rides that were getting out of hand.

After hearing of the VPD's announcement (their first ever regarding this activity in Vancouver) requesting people not drive to or through downtown on Friday evening, I thought a peaceful, purposeful and above-all respectful bike event was exactly what we needed.

Thus, Critical Manners Vancouver was born!

We ride Friday August 14th at 6:00pm through the streets of Vancouver. We'll be easy to miss, since we'll be staying in bike lanes or on the far right side of the road, obeying all traffic signals and otherwise doing our best to share the road effectively with all other vehicles and pedestrians."
