99, 93.... hmmmm
why is that impressive? it's cool, sure, but is it something that should be done by a group that ride under the banner bicycle advocacy? (is that not the mission as the article?pointed?)??Can you mix anarchy with advocacy? I'm sure the argument can be made for yes, but on the other hand you could argue "stunts" make the group less tolerable and less viable as a socio-political voice.
I think the article was OK, not flattering or I think emblematic, it made the group sound more like renegades than advocate. I prefer the excellent article in the Phoenix that was bore from this email list last fall about the thwarted bike theft.... now there were bikers being bikers and in the community of bikers.

It wasn't that bad imho.? He missed the beginning of CM for Boston - which was at least?as far back as?1993.
Did you guys actually ride through the buildings of MIT ?? I am freakin' impressed !?
(CM's mission is only to meet at a time and place and ride.....until you assign it a mission)

Did anyone read the below linked?article that was posted in the Globe? Do you think this is a valid picture of what CM is, and what was the thinking of biking through MIT? Does that further CM's mission?
