I know that there are a lot of riders who disagree with protest rides, but I thought I'd share this information with everyone, so those who choose to attend can attend. I have nothing to do with the organisation of this ride. I'm only spreading the word. So if you have an issue with protest rides, please talk to the organisers. If you take it up with me, you'll be "speaking to the hand" (besides, this is an event thread, not a political discussion thread)...
