Critical Mass Toronto – July Photos

Here’s some pretty photos from last friday’s Critical Mass Ride. There were a lot of people there, but I’m not sure how many… anyone count them?


On Bloor at St. George… you can see the Bata Shoe Museum there in the background. I was near the back of the Mass for most of the ride (I’m just a slowpoke, I guess…).


On Bloor at Queen’s Park Crescent. I’m quite proud that I took a couple okay photos over my shoulder AND that people felt compelled to look at my camera. :) On the left n the background you can see a bit of the new addition to Royal Ontario Museum … which you can see in a better shot too.


On Yonge at Gerrard, heading south… going through a red light (which is just practical when biking with hundreds of other people. :)


Here’s a photo of Tanya (courtesy of TorontoCranks.com), with me behind her (in blue) laughing with a guy, who, when asked why we were riding in a group by a pedestrian, answered not with “to promote cycling as a viable transportation alternative” but with “we’re against test tube babies“. I thought this was very hilarious.

You can see all 22 photos I took over here.
