I have been cyclebumming it for about 5 years here. I remember back when I first started, I was rummaging around the interwebz for Austin cycling events. I read about CM action here in the late 90's and went one Friday to see if it was still running. No one showed up.
Now here we are. It is my understanding that there are hundreds of humans, and a few unidentifiable critters, that show up for this thang.
I have, in private discussion, criticized what I assume to be happening on these rides.
I've had a prejudice against CM.
Today I will give it a fair shake.
