Monster Mass

Finding parking in Tempe is hard, driving down Mill Avenue is frustrating, and we’re pretty sure that Arizona State University is building something to create more roadblocks. City officials encourage Tempeans to “bus, bike or walk,” and at least one group is taking them to heart. Critical Mass, a bicycling club dedicated to asserting cyclists’ right to the road, organizes a monthly ride through the Tempe streets, so grab your bike and a couple of friends and head over to the fountain in front of ASU’s Memorial Union. It’s sure to be fun, and the extra exercise could do you some good after all those decadent holiday foods. Besides, bike rides in January are one of the perks of living in the Valley. Rides are scheduled in Phoenix and Tempe on the first Friday and Saturday of each month, respectively.
First Saturday of every month, 5:30 p.m., 2005
