Well, I was talking out of the box, and I am not going to try to do or
prevent anything, but I will say that it is bicycle advocacy by default. And it is
a party on people propelled wheels. And there is a degree of civil (important
word there) disobedience to it. But yeah, it's also WTF you want it to be,
but there is some baseline cohesion to it.

I have to insist that I am not a leader - because I don't do anything except
ride when I can. My opinion is formed from experience with the ride - and I
am aware of how difficult it is to lead CM beyond a loose gathering of
individuals moving through the streets.
Okay, so it may be perceived by some as advocacy - but be prepared for
disappointment when it doesn't do what YOU want. I am merely trying to get you to
that point of understanding. Over time, you will realize that without
substantial leadership CM will only achieve so much. Often it brings the plight
of bicyclists down a notch as that motorist wipes the spittle from her
I am eager to see what the 'royal' you are going to assign to it. If
nothing else, you can try and prevent riders from entering buildings. (which for
me fits well with the party-on-wheels definition) You may be able to succeed
at that, but unfortunately announcing it on this list doesn't work.
