On Friday August 27, 2004 just days before the start of the Republican National Convention in New York, a massive police operation was underway. By the end of the night 264 people had been arrested. It marked one of the largest mass arrests in the city's history and the arrested had done nothing illegal.

For many New Yorkers, August was the first time they heard of what has become a monthly ritual for city’s cycling community – a free-forming ride called Critical Mass.

Still We Ride is a documentary that captures the joyous atmosphere of this August ride before the arrests began and the chaos that followed. It recounts how Critical Mass first started in San Francisco over 10 years ago and chronicles the police crackdown and resulting court battles in New York over the last seven months.

The movie takes on issues of civil liberties, surveillance, the power of mainstream media, and the benefits of alternative means of transportation.
