The Southside Ride for Chicago Critical Mass

This Critical Mass route proposal is a 14-mile tour of some of Chicago's African-American cultural & historical landmarks. Highlights along the route will include the site of the Chess Records studios, the Bronzeville Victory Monument, Ida B. Wells' home, the Harold Washington Cultural Center, the DuSable Museum, the Obamas' house and much more. The ride will end at the new 31st Street marina and beach.

A special thanks to the lovely Eboni Senai, a true gem in our city. Her work as the Founder of Red Bike & Green - Chicago is energizing bicycling culture in the African American community of Chicago. Also want to share a huge thanks with John Greenfield, Willow Naeco, and Steven Lane for their early, active, and consistent support of this effort.

We will meet up at 5:30pm on Friday, August 31st at the Picasso statue at Daley Plaza. Please join us for a beautiful ride through parts of the Southside of Chicago!

I assume we are just going to be riding by these landmarks instead of actually stopping at them?

I was just thinking I was in need of a new button.  Will also try to help pass out them out

There will be 750 copies of The Derailleur in bundles of 30 at the base of the Picasso ~5 p.m. Please take a bundle (or more) and pass them out!

The Derailleur is FREE. People wearing button aprons can accept donations to help offset the costs associated with making the zine. (See my expenses here.)  Leave the rubberbands/extra zines at the base of the Picasso when the Mass starts to leave...or take some copies to your favorite bike shops.

Please please please help pass out The Derailleur. I cannot pass them all out on my own.

Thanks!

It's critical mass.  There are no rules.   You can stop at any time -nobody is going to hassle you.

If you want to be sure of the route find Willow or one of her  minions helping her in handing them out.  Usually she sets up on the South side of he Picasso with her boxfull of Derailleurs.

That was fun!

The nicest part was I had the best two partners to ride with.
