Critical Mass for Cars in Boulder, USA

Git yer pickups and yer SUVs, we is gonna block some roads so dem dang cyclists can learn a lesson. We is not gonna take this prejoodice against us anymore.

There's a cycling event in Boulder, USA in July and an anonymous flyer is being distributed encouraging motorists to disrupt the ride:

“On July 25, in celebration of driver’s rights, many cars will use the Left Hand Canyon Road, drive slowly and many may break down unexpectedly, blocking areas to the cyclists on the return leg of the ‘Sunrise Century,’” the anonymous, one-page note reads. “Many cars and safe drivers all working together can send a message to the Statehouse to restrict cycling on our roads which are our only alternatives during family emergencies, commuting and required duties.”
