Critical Mass Tonight: Brickell Better Get Ready for Some Bicycles
Michael E. Miller
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
LeBron is gone. No longer will we have wet dreams about attending Critical Mass and spotting King James next to us in the peloton.
But Miami's monthly bike celebration continues without him. Tonight's ride will take cyclists 11.5 miles along Calle Ocho, across Coral Gables, and back through Brickell. Bros in their Bugattis best beware.
As always, cyclists from around Miami will assemble at Government Center around 6:30 p.m. The mass will begin at 7:15.

After tensions flared between cyclists and the Miami Police Department in June, last month's ride went smoothly. Some cops even tagged along for the ride.
It's unclear if police also plan to accompany tonight's ride.
Bikers are encouraged to use lights, stay together, avoid oncoming traffic, and leave the alcohol for after the ride.
