    First National Bike Day (Philippines) not-so-fun-ride

    I joined this fun ride last Sunday curious to see the emerging bike culture of the our locale. I was quite impressed with the turn out (over 1000 participants of all ages and styles).

    What ruined the nice ride was the reckless attitude of some cyclists. One of the objectives of the ride was promote rode safety for cyclists yet not even 15 minutes into the ride our group was buzzed by some guys on BMX bikes luckily none of us crashed, unlike the guy who endo'd a few more minutes later after getting the same treatment. Then halfway thru the route as we were on the new 8-lane highway (we were using 4 lanes of it) a group decided that 4 lanes is not enough and decided to occupy the other half causing a traffic jam for motorists.

    I guess that pretty much presented us cyclists as just one of the many a$$hats of the Phillippine road.

    That sums up what critical mass rides are all about. I bumped into group that same day. I was on my way home from a road ride. Yup, there were many *******s. I feel your pain.
