Houston biking group eyes future amid growth, complaints

On the last Friday of every month, Houston bicyclists meet at Market Square park to take part in Critical Mass, an informal bike ride that happens among different groups all over the world.

The size of the last ride was the talk of the town on Friday night, good and bad.

Abrahan Garza has been riding with CM since May 2009. He remembers there only being around 300 riders on his first ride. Friday night, he says he was one of nearly 1,500. Some estimated there to be close to 2,000.

Some have begun asking out loud if this means the event is getting too big for its own good.

2. I think that may be asking to much from them.

However, any improvements that they make will help.
