Be good, don't steal, and hold your line. I'd say don't tag, but that's up for debate (Don't do it).
And learn your grammar for fuck's sake!
"are like in THEIR 20s"
Tell your pals likewise.
I wish I was doing cool stuff like this when I was 15. Instead I was miserable and hated everyone and everything. But that's okay, I'm making up for it now by acting like a 15-year-old (Mostly of the horny boy variety).
first of all i dont do that stuff. second i really dont care about my grammar on the internet. and 3rd of all the whole having fun thing thats really debatable because my other friends can be doing something more fun.
But you shooould care about your grammar! You should care about it everywhere! Okay, not ALL grammar, but the difference between "there" and "their" is ever so vast...they mean entirely different things!
It'll just help you sound as smart as you obviously are (As displayed by your non-participation in stealing and stuff).
Marshall in the house babyyy! palucha, man.... just enjoy riding your bike, make a lot of friends, be safe, don't get into trouble like a lot of high school kids do. this community is very welcoming... it's done much for me. and please... TRANSFER TO MARSHALL!!! i'm a senior there, but i'm about to graduate.
15-16 seems to be the average starting age as of last year.
When I first started, I was 24 and the captain of an Interst(ellar)ate Cargo sloop for the S.outh W.estern I.mperial F.reight T.riumvirate.
Being that my first rides were in Vegas and PDX, I assumed all the ridazz were in their mid-20s and up.
It wasn't until I first started hitting the rides originating from the LA Basin that I found many high-schoolers and college freshmen were involved.
Be that as it may, indulge in this activity and make it as normal as brushing your teeth, it will outlast any "club-crew", that's for damned sure.
Im 17 and before I finished high school I was sitting with my bike every day at lunch (It was honestly more fun then sitting with anyone else). This is the one group of people you don't have to worry about age with. Some of my closest friends are in there twenties.late twenties, and they respect me and treat me like an equal. My little brother is 15 too and gets a long with veryone! ! Just don't be afraid to talk to people, We iz one big giant family! x
Hahah you seriously thought that? It helps that everyone I affiliate myself with, other then my brother and three or four non ridazz, are all older then me. There is wayyyyyy to much drama in the teenage world in LA, I can barely keep up. I prefer to hear the drama about broken bottom brackets and weather or not someone should convert from single speed to fixi :)
I know eh
I have an hard time trying to stand on a mutural stand point with my non rida peers.
All their talking about on monday is who got wasted,hooked up or arrested at some party or rave. When I tell them about my weekend their like "what's a crank mob?"
haha I hung out with non rida friends for the first time in a month last night and I tried explaining robotz, and I just got blank looks back. From what I heard last night, life in LA is boring if you don't have a bike :)
Ehh and since most of my non rida friends have recently gotten their lisences im kinda like way outta connect with them too.
Their talking about exhaust systems,sound systems,rims and all those other ricer parts,
I wish I had someone AT my school who I can talk about bottom brackets,chainrings,headsets and other awesome bike parts with :(
& palucha66 don't worry bought your age as long as you act as who YOU are and dont try to impress, or show off to be excepted you will be mucho loved... specially since you just entered the most excepting social group ive ever seen
and the # of young people i see at rides is growing so your def not alone
...and i dont know if this contradicts what i just said but dont be afraid to act a fool sometimes,,,, as long as you dont hurt anyone haha
funny.. same thing happened to me at work during lunch on Monday. i waited patiently listening to everyone else's weekend and then they asked what i did - it's like i'm not from the same world. and the questions!
so, i stop explaining ROBOTZ and invite them to TT or crank mob. i get the same blank faces and then talk about riding my bike to work - finally i get some head nods. lol
i worried about the same thing
when i started going on rides.
cops haven't told me anything yet,
i think its because they see me with
a huge group of cyclists. just make
sure you have your front & back
lights, that way, they wont have an
excuse to pull you over.
geez, things seem to be pretty intense within this community. Is it just teen angst or too much inbreeding?
Lately I've been feeling like I want to go out on one of these rides and rub elbows again, is there a particular ride that one of the "Ridazz celebrities" could recommend? I looked to the right and I wasn't sure about any of them. Maybe the Ride with No Name?
The ridazz seem to have evolved onto a different plane of existence, is there another internet group more my speed I should look into? Seriously. Bikeboom is useless.

yeah, I've decided to screw it. I'm gonna work on my DIY xtracycle clone and I think I've finally figured out a good way to implement a hitch for a trailer.
But its nice someone is finally hosting a ride that's metro timetable friendly, I always felt weird driving downtown to go to bike rides.
Park a couple blocks away, then nonchalantly pedal to the meet point..riding back along the river path during the wee hours was always fun and relaxing though when I did take the metro.

what's wrong with marshall? isn't marshall a medical magnet, or some shit like that? lol, maybe i'm thinking of some other high school... but at least marshall is in a nice part of town. i went to wack ass hami... now known as "the jerk" school. come on now.
It's not THAT bad, but the quality of education is definitely not as good as it used to be. I'm not talking on a budget cut level either. Not only that, but if I was going to go to a school where the education sucked, I'd at least want some nice people, and there's none of that there either. Just a bunch of snobs.
