Just before I did the slide show, along came 100s of cyclists down Valencia, turning on to 21st St. Boisterous, friendly, loud. I’d never seen “Critical Mass” before. Worldwide now, started in SF 1982.
“What is Critical Mass?
Critical Mass is a mass bicycle ride that takes place on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world. Everyone is invited! No one is in charge! Bring your bike!”
Doorway on 21st Street. I love wandering the city with camera. Country hick: “Wow! Look at that!”
I think San Francisco is culturally rich right now.
