Downtown Traffic Will Suck Tonight, Thanks to Critical Mass

Posted By on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 12:15 PM

For the most part, San Franciscans look favorably on Critical Mass, the monthly brigade of well-intentioned cyclists pedaling through the streets together. Well, except for this guy below.

Anyway. Even non-cyclists can find ways to appreciate the Earth-friendly event, until of course it affects their commute home -- on a Friday. Yep, it's that time again, the last Friday of the months, when cyclists will meet at Justin Herman Plaza at 6 p.m.and pedal their way through downtown, clogging the roads and snarling traffic.

Here's what police have to say about it:

"Because of the large number of bicyclists, traffic, particularly in the downtown area, will be impacted, and motorists are alerted to possible driving delays."

In other news, many flights landed successfully today at SFO.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
