Check out David Spaulding's condensed video of the August Critical Mass bike ride. You can view it at the What's Going Down(town) weblog.
Three Spaulding brothers made the ride - as did your editor, the JG's Frank Gray, Phil and Phyllis Suelzer, David Armstrong (pictured below), and more than 150 other area bike riders.
A brief route description: the ride started at Lawton Park, went across the Tennessee Avenue bridge, then down Anthony to Maumee Avenue, thence on to the City of New Haven, down the street on which I grew up, north on Landin, back on Maysville Road/E. State Boulevard until there was a slight jog on Maplecrest, then on to Vance, west to Parnell, and Parnell back to Tennessee Avenue.
At the intersection of Vance and North Anthony, riders in the front of the pack proceeded south on Crescent. However, Brian Spaulding, who was turning off to head home, inadvertently inspired the rest of the pack to follow him west on Vance Avenue. The Crescent riders eventuallly converged with the main pack at E. State Boulevard and Parnell.
