i rode for a bit... when i went through harvard later there were
some police cars, a tow truck and some kids on bikes just past
the pit. related to the ride?

Dunno about the kids on bikes. The cops were assisting a broken
down car. There was basically 0 police problems.

Except for the off-duty cop in a car who went balistic on me
and another guy.
akahn @ 2006-07-01 01:31 am UTC
Yeah, that shit was stupid.

Nah. They were begrudging but friendly enough.
There was one lone bike cop on Mass Ave near Central who
decided to throw himself in front of one woman though, to
"stop" her. He let go of her bike when some other dude went
ballistic on him, and grabbed onto his bike. They were really
wrestling with each other for 5 or 10 seconds. I was sure
somebody was going to get maced at the very least.
The cop calmed down and gave up when he noticed there were 75
or so unsympathetic bikers surrounding him.
I have no idea why this jerk singled that woman out. (She was
even wearing a helmet, though I know they can't stop you for
that.) Or what he thought was going to happen afterwards.
