Generally I'm in support of what BicycleSpace is trying to accomplish with these rides but I've been on a few and was greatly disturbed by how the leader encouraged really bad cycling behavior. For instance, riding through red lights as a group, not stopping at stop signs, not yielding to pedestrians.

I decided to stop attending these rides since I didn't want to contribute to the negative image of cyclists.

I did bring this issue up to one of the workers at one point and was told that they have to encourage such behavior in order to keep the group together. I greatly disagree with this argument having been on other group rides held by organizations such as WABA where laws were obeyed and the group stayed together reasonably well.

I hope BicycleSpace reviews its policies and reforms its ways.
