Interesting debate underway on Facebook over last night's Critical Mass bicycling throng on the streets of Los Angeles, which the mainstream media like KNBC-4 duly reported as a “smooth ride,” but some riders found it a bit emasculating.

One commenter, Edin Barrientos, says “LAPD finally destroyed” Los Angeles Critical Mass.

Another rider shot back that: “I know a lot of people [are] complaining about the cops giving citations but then again everyone was warned so it's on them.”

Here's the question:

Who is right, if anyone, or was it a mixed bag of experiences last night on the streets of Los Angeles?
