Web Exclusive: A spoke in the wheel of Critical Mass' story


Friday, September 28 is the 20th anniversary of Critical Mass, a weekly event in San Francisco where bicyclists ride around the city to reclaim their right to the road. KALW’s Ben Trefny spoke with Chris Carlsson, who cowrote the book Shift Happens: Critical Mass at 20. You can here the complete interview here, but take a listen to a special un-aired segment of the interview here. Carlsson reflects on a dust-up between about 10,000 Mass riders and then Mayor Willie Brown in 1997.
