Critical Mass in Costa Mesa


I just recently heard of Critical Mass, an event that is typically held on the last Friday of every month in cities around the world where bicyclists and other self-propelled commuters take to the streets in mass. The groups seem to have little to no centralized organization and pride themselves on their autonomy. I appreciate the simplistic approach to the idea of getting together in mass to celebrate bicycling. Of course the underlying message of alternative transportation and lifestyle that is conveyed to those who wittiness a Critic Mass group, whether on purpose or not, is a definite step in the right direction.

The Costa Mesa Critical Mass group meets at Rooster Cafe at 6pm on the last Friday of each month.
Rooster Cafe
750 Saint Clair Street
Costa Mesa, CA 92626


Margaritaville Mondays: Meet at the triangle square elevators at (around) 630, leave whenever, end at taco mesa for amazing mexican food and 50¢ margaritas. this ride is for everyone, but please, keep the drinking to 21+

Wednesday night social: Meet at the triangle square elevators at (around) 630, leave whenever. this ride takes us down the newport peninsula and across the ferry to balboa island where we stop for ferry beers. after we ride through balboa and through the back bay loop we stop at cafe blanc for some gelato, then it's off to tacos & tacos for.. tacos. after tacos, DETROIT BAR for some good music and $1 beers. if you're thinking, "man, this ride has a lot of stops," that is why it is called the social ride. bring $2 cash for the ferry, more if you want food and stuff.
