Critical mass legal in London

I've never been on a critical mass ride and never really wanted to except to see what it is about. However the Police decided that the ride was a protest and therefore required permission and them to be informed of the route. Now I object to the idea that you need to ask permission for a protest but that is what has happened since New Labour decided that it was embarrassing to have people protesting so banned them.
However today a Judge decided that at least in this case Critical Mass is not a protest but a bike ride so is not illegal.
