Last year, the City settled a class action lawsuit with 83 cyclists who were wrongly arrested by the NYPD during Critical Mass rides and this week the checks totaling $965,000 were sent out.

Bike advocacy group Time Up estimates that the final costs of the NYPD’s aggressive campaign could exceed $3 million, but that hasn’t influenced the police to change their tactics and judging by their presence at last month’s ride, they’re still running with the heavy handed approach.
