An extreme bike advocacy group in Santa Monica called Crimanimal Mass made a statement in our neighborhood on Friday night by riding on the freeway at rush hour. About 30 cyclists invaded a local onramp and then wove through jammed traffic on the I-10, our main highway that runs from the ocean to downtown. I think this is their third freeway ride in the last few months. There is tons of criticism about the stunts, and an equal amount of support. Personally I don't mind a little radicalness to bang home a point. Here's a cool helmet-cam video from their first ride. Ride On, Cali! Read an article about it here (along with surprising updates about our school's molestation case, ug.)
