Reposting this from yesterday's 250 as I think I left it too late in the day to be seen:Yo editors, just got your email about the Sky Ride - just curious if you know about the Critical Mass, which is the EXACT same thing which happens spontaneously every month in Manchester, without the assistance of any corporate sponsors seeking green points? And if you do know about it, whether you've ever given it any coverage? Can't find anything using the search. Cheers
