I just noticed that someone is trying to put together a DTLA mochi ride on mondays -- maybe the next time we have a level 1 we can join them for a portion of our ride and then zip over to the USC campus -- there's a good photo op at the school of philosophy there....

We'll get smarter if we keep going to school right?

Its from El Atacor #11 @ 2622 N Figueroa St.

Someone on the ride had rec'd it and I had read reviews about the mashed potato tacos (tacos de papas) and the Super Burrito (aka the Porno Burrito). I think that burrito was like 6.99 -- I didn't taste it, but the carnitas sopes and the tacos de papas I had were great. Cheaper than Burrito King and Rambo's Tacos, which had been my neighborhood go-to spots.

The ride turned out to be steeper than I thought it would be b/c we got to a patch on Mulholland where I had to pedal standing, even in my lowest gearing. But, we had a detour in Echo Park and ended up at Alex's for some home brewed beers.

Come out next week, we'll do a level 2!

What? Now that I am a workin' man again, I really want to try to finish our ride by midnight each week.

But, yeah, getting over to the eastside by 8 after work (and, you know, eating at some point between the two) would be tough for me. That's also why I stopped doing Bicykillers many moons ago. Employment = the end of riding.

It is all moot tonight because I need to go scouting anyway.

John, I wanted to give you the same feeling as when your mother used to walk you to the bus stop when you were in 1st grade - on time, safe and ready for departure. Sorry I forgot to pack you a lunch.

In other news, we were missing several regulars this week but one new face, Jose, right on brother. Keep coming out.

I keep making the routes category 2's so ya'll won't shy away . . . last night was super flat, fun pace and only 6 riders. DO we have to get ice cream for more people to come out? We will try this again and hope to get riders back in the double digits, otherwise were going to do the Mt. Washington "we all climb on" route.

Should we assume you’ll do the baking “during” the hellish hill climbing route?

It sounds rough John, especially the alligators. You forgot to mention it was uphill both ways.

Sounds like a challenge has been thrown done Nancy . . .

I'll assume allbaking will be done prior to the ride, Nancine will not miss the actual cimbing, no way.

could drop you guys off, if you ride out from your place.

Meet at 8 at the starbucks on Valley/granada in Alhambra.
We leave at 8:30 and usually have some taco truck to eat at, or pho, or yogurtland.

Great ride last night.
Great scenery last night.
Great people out last night.
Great Kim Jong il creme in my mouth.

Yeah, I even saw John Vu's tweet about being there -- but about an hour afterwards. Fuck. Well, if you're ever in Koreatown again, send up a flare (or, ya know, a phone call). And I really do want to make it out at some point. I'm just super slow-moving after work. There have seriously been times when I've had a hard time making it to our ride in time (and it is an hour later and about ten blocks from my apartment).

Basically, working makes me lame.

Hey KiMS1 (Mike), one of our goals with Cyclones was to get the ride over early enough for those of us who couldn't start at 10pm. Super manly type insomniacs like John can warm up on our ride and continue onto Wolfpack. The pace of the ride is up and down, we try to keep the whole group involved. Some weeks are more work than others but we try to focus on having a good time, creative route, etc.

Come on down!

08.25.10 - 5:40 pm

i remember you from the dark century! i'm sure that you are a good rider, but we are concerned about all the drivers out there and bad road conditions that are beyond our control.

even at low speeds you can tip over or fall, and having to get a cat scan costs way more than a helmet. my cat scan was like $355, while a serviceable helmet can be bought for $15.

we do have occasional riders show up without a helmet and we don't ask them to leave, but a) we are not responsible if you get hurt b) we will nag you about not wearing one and c) i don't want to see your brains on the concrete. please get a friggin' helmet, not for our ride, but for yourself.

Steve, Tom, EVERYONE, come again.

Thanks to Alex and Nancy for leading the ride last night.

In other news . . .

Hey Cyclones Gang, read the route description! Sometimes we argue whether a ride is a Category 2 or 3 and sometimes we actually call the ride a 2.5 but when we come right out and say the ride is a 1 . . . it's a 1! This week was an effort to bring some new peeps out who wouldn't otherwise make it. There were 6 girls at the meet-up! That didn't happen by saying we were doing 50 miles of fast climbing. Clearly we are not going to have 3 beer stops every week, this is not a party ride. That said, we do try to mix it up and have some fun, including some good hustles. Speaking of hustles, look around you. There is at least one person on the ride who can drop you like a cheap whore at any time but notice dudes who go to Wolfpack after Cyclones don't feel like they need to push the pack because they are going to a fast ride later and it doesn't make them feel cool to be faster than a bunch of girls and riders who are just getting their feet wet. If you want to see how fast you are come out to TRFKAS on Wednesday. If you are done eating at the end of the ride before the majority of the ride makes it to the food stop . . . you're pretty fast.

Look, I want everyone to have a good time but when girls show up or people make a decision which bike to bring because of the route we don't go and blow that out of the water. I want the ride description to matter. I spend TIME on this shit (maps, route slips, food stops, pictures, etc) because I think it makes for a better ride.
