Streetfilms: Halloween Mass in San Francisco

5:25 PM PST on November 6, 2008

This week's events make Halloween seem like a long time ago, but it was only last Friday when Clarence Eckerson, on a west coast jaunt for Streetfilms, shot this video of Critical Mass in San Francisco. Some think it was the city's biggest mass ride ever. Clarence offers a possible explanation:

With monthly rides under attack in some cities,it is interesting to see the tactic that San Francisco takes. Thepolice department is practically hands off, and the ride is verypeaceful and non-confrontational. Even drivers and spectators don'tseem to mind the action.

"So," Clarence wonders, "why can't it be the same in NYC?"
