Police try to manage the July 2006 ride of London's Critical Mass.


Having won its court case against the police, London CM is now being subjected by the cycle cops to barricading and cars being allowed to nose into the ride. This had the effect of slowing down the Mass and causing fragmentation as well as extra traffic congestion. Towards the end of the ride a cyclist is accused of denting the fragile wing of a London taxi with his hand and a policeman takes his particulars.
