LONG BEACH — Critical Mass or critical mess?
That depends on which side of the story you hear.
About 100 bicyclists from "Critical Mass," a monthly bicycle ride to celebrate cycling and to assert cyclists' right to the road, caused a bit of a mess as they rode through the streets of Long Beach Friday night, according to police reports.
Long Beach members of the group met at Cal State Long Beach's Pyramid between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. for a bike ride that turned out to be shorter than planned when they were stopped by police and cited. Several bikes confiscated for city violations.
