The NYPD yesterday warned bicycle riders who
intend to participate in to- night's monthly trek through the city's
streets that they will be arrested if they fail to adhere to the rules
of the road.

Thousands of cyclists will gather in Union Square tonight to join
Critical Mass - a group ride that meets on the last Friday of every
month to demonstrate their support for transportation alternatives in
cities.

In the past, the mass rides have blocked intersections and caused
traffic chaos. On the Friday night before the GOP convention, 149
riders were busted after an NYPD spokesman said they had caused
"massive disruptions."
