In what way is this any less of a nuisance to other road users that
the cyclists' CM?
"Thousands of bikers have riden through Wootton Bassett to honour the
people of the Wiltshire town and the soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
Each rider has paid £5 to take part, with the proceeds going to the
charity Afghan Heroes.
An estimated 15,000 bikers and pillion passengers congregated at
Hullavington Airfield in Wiltshire.
The first batch of 500 riders left at 1100 GMT to ride to Wootton
Basset via the M4 motorway.
The event lasted until early evening, with bikers leaving the airfield
at 30-minute intervals to make their way to Wootton Bassett.
About 10,000 riders registered to take part. They were accompanied by
some 5,000 pillion passengers..."

working with the Ministry of Defence and Wiltshire Council to ensure
public safety, with police escorting the bikers and a helicopter at
There is a big difference between an organised charity event and a
cyclists' critical mass event, that is designed to break the law and
get up everybodys' noses!
What about getting up Muslim's and pacifist's noses? The only reason
it allegedly didn't break the law is because it was authorised by the
war criminals who happen to have a stranglehold on this benighted
country. Some of the people of Wootton Bassett should be ashamed of
themselves for the way they repeatedly exploit wars for propaganda
purposes and I am sure their remainder feel as uncomfortable about it
as I do.
Anyway, I don't see any difference in the way inconvenience is caused
to those who want to pass and repass on public roads except that the
bikers were far more numerous and bulky than CM cyclists.
