FRIDAY NIGHT WEST SIDE RIDE ANYONE?
Who on the west side wants to ride a little tomorrow night around 9:30-10pm?
This would be a ride that riders from Santa Monica Critical Mass, smcm boycotters, and all other west-siders without plans would all want to go to because going home at 10pm on a Friday night is only for people who want to be riding at 8am on Saturday with all the crazy lycra dudes going 50mph.
Yes there is RIDE-Arc, but it starts in Chinatown and is 30 miles of climbing. Yes there is Los Angelopes at 2pm the next day, but that doesn't help Friday night at all. Yes you can haz a cheezeburger, and you can haz Tecate too.
Meet at Mar Vista Park at 9:30, ride at 10?

If there is enough interest, I will post the ride up and make a route. Probably 5-10 miles. Plenty of stops. Hopefully music. Hopefully jump rope. Definitely frisbee!
Also if someone has a better start point in mind, let your voice be heard!
c'monn j-boy come to china town lets ride arc...

Maybe I jumped the gun but it is POSTED
I'm sorry SONNY, you are a cool dude and I wish it made more sense for me to do RIDE-Arc. I know it will be a good time! Hope to see you at Los Angelopes on Saturday afternoon man!
I am hoping that whoever brings the sound system for SMCM is willing to do this ride as well(?)

Make it longer...I don't get off work till midnight :)
06.6.08 - 1:52 am
Give me a call when you get out of work and I will try to make shit happen!
I just posted my cell number in the ride info
06.6.08 - 2:09 am
No way am I going to Ride-ARC either, and since SMCM doesn't (yet) have the required level of F.U.N. mandated by state legislature, I will be participating. Yay westside!

is where the action is at. Once a month. J-boy, you can always cancel

"because going home at 10pm on a Friday night is only for people who want to be riding at 8am on Saturday with all the crazy lycra dudes going 50mph."
Nice to hear that the westside is back! Keep it up!
06.6.08 - 9:13 am
H'mm, if my ass isn't caught dead working around that time, I may be willing to make a trip from the Eastern Bloc to join y'all on the extravagant West.
As for the lycra-jocks going 50mph on their carbon-fiber, cheat-machines, throw a loaded pannier on there and it's going to get rough!!!
06.6.08 - 10:08 am
Vlad! Glad to hear you are coming man! FREE BEER FOR YOU if you are willing to supply your speaker!!
Barleye- Not gonna cancel this. I really have no desire to get on my chunky geared bike and I don't want to die on my fixed gear up those hills either. I know RIDE-Arc will be a good ride though! Have fun man!
e-rock- Have fun on your Saturday morning ride with the folks in lycra! See you at Los Angelopes! Saturday is going to rule. PERIOD.
bentstrider- It would be great to ride with you tonight, man! Hope to see you there!
SOUND SYSTEM = PENDING CONFIRMATION
FRISBEE = CHECK
JUMPROPE = WANT
06.6.08 - 11:28 am
HACKY SACK! CHECK!
I'll definitely be here if I finish one of my school projects by 9 p.m. FINALS FTL...
06.6.08 - 1:05 pm
the vladster will bring his sound system? Make sure it has fresh batteries.
06.6.08 - 2:19 pm
I am so down for a westside ride...
I have been commuting way too much to ride my bike.

"As for the lycra-jocks going 50mph on their carbon-fiber, cheat-machines, throw a loaded pannier on there and it's going to get rough!!!"
You can't put panniers on my carbon fiber cheat machine - it has no mount points and the carbon seat and chainstays won't stand up to the load. Nope, you'll have to carry my shit for me, I guess.
Incidentally, Strider, take your Dahon up a hill sometime They climb really well. Those little wheels spin right up in a way big wheels never will. I climb way better on my dahon. I'm taking it to Ridearc tonight, I think.

Why all the hate for the roadies?
They're still on bicycles, after all...
06.6.08 - 7:03 pm
-I don't think of it as hate, I just think of it as them living with this false, sense of security that they could out-pedal anyone on their chosen rig.
Until I see a speed-demon hop off the OCLV and onto a beach-cruiser to continue the reign of terror, I'll stick to my guns.

Thanks everyone for coming out, you all made my night. Seriously, you guys rock. Everyone helping out and being patient with the flats was great!!
I hope to see you all next time!
COSTCO PARKING LOT DRAG RACES

MORE F'N FUN
See you tomorrow (today) at Los Angelopes, and thanks again for coming out tonight!

10.1.08 - 11:07 am
What is this? My out-of-context probe has broken due to a collision with an errant ego defense...
10.1.08 - 11:08 am
Lane, why the hell are you not riding right now?
It's 11:10am on a Wednesday.
WTF man, cereally
10.1.08 - 11:09 am
