      Dublin Ireland has a history of very large turn outs to their Critical
      Mass's.

      According to reports - at least one - Dublin Critical Mass has either
      gone under ground, so to speak, or is not meeting for the time being. It
      may be that the government officials have shut them down, or somehow
      reports of their rides are not being reported on, at the moment.(see

      Subj:[CSM!]Dublin Bicycle Commuting... one of the top bicycle friendly

      Bicycle commuting in Dublin Ireland.
      http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6622988120159554144

      The cyclist in the video(see link above) demonstrates how folks in
      Dublin bicycle in bus lanes. They also show how the public bus operators
      whom want to pass a cyclist riding in the bus lane, merely changes lanes
      to over take the cyclist, the bus proceeds a safe distance in front of
      the cyclist, then returns the to the bus lane in front of the cyclist.
      This is a much more friendly, peaceful, stress reducing method for
      everyone, especially the cyclists.

      Apparently, "BUS LANA", is "Bus Lane" in the Gaelic language, the
      official language of Ireland.

      DAMN! They have a lot of bicycle lanes! I think Dublin probably has more
      bicycle lanes than any of the biggest contenders in the USA, like
      Portland or San Francisco.. and perhaps even some of the other biggies
      around the globe, such as Amsterdam in Nederland, AKA Holland)

      Dublin's transportation systems seem to be something to model for us
      folks in Santa Monica and adjacent Westside communities.

      As the video depicts, there certainly seem to be a lot of people that
      ride bicycle in Dublin, the capital of the Emerald Isle, Ireland (Green
      Island)(see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland ).

      For more info on Dublin cycling, see: http://www.dublincycling.org

      Anyone have any ideas on how to pull the video off the web for offline
      archiving?
