Some cool women wear scarf images:
Champaign-Urbana Critical Mass
Image by kidmissile
My first Critical Mass ride on Friday 09/26/2006.
I took some hurried shots at the beginning of the ride. I didn’t get a chance to take any during the ride. I think at one point someone said the count was 54 people riding.
It’s hard to tell, but if you look closely, you can see that the woman in the left foreground wearing the scarf was riding a double-decker. It was a sweet bike. She got a lot of attention from cars during the ride.
