OK, so I was a little hasty in throwing the "Critical Mass" idea out there. I'll readily admit that I wasn't aware of the connotation and disparate views the CM rides bring with them. That said, something still needs to be done to raise driver awareness of cyclists on the road in Orange County so, rather than a massive, possibly illegal, event, I think it would make sense to try to put together a massive charity type ride that OC bike shops, sponsors, car dealers, etc could get behind in an effort to get people thinking.

At this juncture I'm looking for two things:

1. Feedback on this idea: Does it make sense? What's your level of interest? What suggestions would you have to pull it off? Etc, etc, etc...

2. Help. If you're interested in helping me do something here, please send me a PM. I'll tell you right now that I'm pretty good with ideas and planning but minutia is not my strong suit so, if one of you detail/task oriented peeps out there would like to jump on board, that would help immensely.

Hopefully we can get this thing off the ground!
