Hey All, my friend Mike is currently making a narrative film which features a scripted critical mass/ flock of cyclists styled ride.

So we’d like to invite anyone interested to come out and attend a fun, easy, safe and well behaved group ride to be filmed (via bicycle) for his project. We’d love to have your pretty faces! Details on the time and location TBA.

Any special clothing requested / required? Any special clothing banned? Depending on where it is, I’m in, sounds like fun.

Can we show up even if we don’t have a ‘pretty face’? %-)

Thanks for all the positive feedback! We’re shooting for Sunday early afternoon at a centrally located and popular meeting point. Say Dippy or Friendship Park.

Of course, I invite you all and all your faces are pretty whether you think so or not.

As for special costume recommendations, I’d recommend looking like the conscientious, sporty and stylish cyclists you are.

Ok, we’re all meeting up at Friendship park on Sunday 9/26 at 1pm! For a short, fun and easy ride to be shot in the film. I hope to see you there!

Hi all! I’m the writer/director of the movie. I hope you all can make it! My movie is about a young woman living in Pittsburgh. She is sort of at a stand still in her life and not sure where to go next. She’s a vegetarian, rides her bike everywhere, and doesn’t own a cell phone. The movie ends with her riding in a critical mass through the streets of Pittsburgh. That is what I need all you for! Again, we’re meeting at 1:00pm at Friendship park. Thanks so much!

Only if we can ride in a FOC instead of a critical mass…

Yea.. we have this thing called flock of cycles now. Critical Mass in Pittsburgh has devolved into group of mostly angry folks who feel they are entitled to run lights and many of which also aim to piss off every other road user. Last one I went on we almost massed over a mom with a toddler walking in a crosswalk, pushing a baby in a stroller.

I like the flock of cycles idea. I’m not looking for any angry cyclists!

ok well I’ve been out of the loop for a while, let’s just say I would emphasize fun and well behaved for this ride as opposed to whatever reputation critical mass may now have.

Very cool, Ted. The CM part made me a little skeptical about going.

Cool if I ride my tall bike?
