October Critical Mass in San Francisco from Recent SF Trip

I took a trip for my honeymoon to San Francisco last week. I was not able to ride in Critical Mass, but we did have the pleasure of seeing the Mass clog traffic on Kearny where it hits Columbus in North Beach.

We had just finished an excellent Italian dinner outside, and started the walk to Union Square when we came across the Mass. Below is a picture when the corking started.

Here are some Massers flying by the cork. I was amazed at how unmassed the ride was compared to here in Chicago.

Eventually, more folks stopped as the drivers were starting to get out of their cars. What was really entertaining was the guy with the large red parasol that you can see in the pic. As he was corking, he undid the parasol and stood there while motorists honked and yelled.

Extra corking

Here is a view south on Kearny. Notice Francis Ford Coppola’s Zoetrope on the left in the flatiron style building.

the traffic might have been backed up for a mile...

All in all, a nice extra after a great meal in SF!
