OLYMPIA, Wash. — A bicyclist participating in a "Critical Mass" ride was arrested on suspicion of violating the city's Pedestrian Interference Ordinance downtown about 6:15 p.m. Friday after he allegedly blocked the path of a sport utility vehicle near Legion Way and Seventh Avenue on Capitol Way, police said.

The arrest prompted a large number of the bicyclists to gather Friday night in front of the Olympia Police Department's headquarters at City Hall on Plum Street in solidarity with the rider who was arrested.
