Photos From Last Night's Critical Mass Ride

Reports of how many riders took their two wheels to the street last night vary: "Here are some estimates of last night's ride. 2500 from LAPD. 900 - 1700 from the statisticians riding in the group," notes the LosAngelesCM Twitter feed. "Either way it was huge."
