Critical Mass, the monthly bike ride that takes over entire roads, happens to occur on Black Friday this month. At least fewer people are working today. Which is a good thing, unless, of course, you're coming home with a car loaded with shopping bags sometime after 7:15 tonight.
Tonight's ride, like all Critical Masses, will start at Government Center in downtown before taking a route through the southwest portions of the city and heading as far west as Ponce de Leon Avenue in Coral Gables. Take a look at the map below, and, drivers, plan to avoid the areas beforehand.
After meeting at Government Center at 6:30 p.m., riders will take off at 7:15. The ride is expected to take about an hour.
As always, organizers required anyone 16 or younger to wear a helmet. All riders must have safety lights affixed to the front and back of their bikes. Biking while drunk and wearing headphones are also forbidden.
