Well, you have the wrong T.T., but anyway we were at the BFF on Friday Night anyway. I think you should really check your facts before you say someone is "seriously lame and really disrespectful" and maybe worry about yourself being "seriously lame and really disrespectful", imho.
PS - Thanks for starting our thread with a negative post.
you are right and I am sorry that I started this thread with a negative post.
I'll put it this way. Taco Tues "The Photography Ride" by Kenny Ong played Sat night. It was a beautifully shot movie, and actually one of my favorites of that screening. I was extremely bummed and hurt to hear that Kenny and/or other Taco Tues peeps did not show up for it. I hope that my information is incorrect, and I'm glad you got a chance to come on Fri night. I hope you enjoyed yourself.
Again, I'm sorry for being negative right off the bat. It's been a stressful weekend, I'm not usually negative.
No worries at all, we set this ride as a weekly thang so that everyone could attend once or twice a month if there work schedule got hectic, lucky for me my schedule is really, really, open. Make it back as soon as ya can, the ride is better with ya and your new shues.
PS - Get ready for the "Taco Tuesday Ride to the Ride to the Meatier Meteor Shower Ride v2.0 on 08.12.08", it just happens to be on a Tuesday, so of course we are hitting it up all night long and watching the cosmic fireworks. Stay tuned for details.....
Had no idea that there was a OC Taco Tuesday or such, I thought we were biting corporate America since one of our members work at Del Taco. Who knew? Does the OC Taco Tuesday still do rides? I will hate to change the name of our ride (again), but I don't want to create confusion either. Anyone have more info?
if anyone wants some pre-taco tuesday burgers i wil be grilling from about 7 pm to 8pm and anyone is welcome to come by for as many burgers as theyd like. they are the BEST (secret recipe). call my cell 310 945 7629 for directions to mi casa, whcih is only about 12 mins from crank mob park. i aslo have boca burgers if thats your thing.
Name is confusing since the OC ride has been there for a while. If you mention Taco tuesday, people who've been here for a while will think of the one that starts at the Orange Circle. They use to post that ride on this site when they first started. I guess that the trouble with using the same name.
i will miss my taco tuesday posse this week.. ride hard, ride well and eat much! I will be flowing with you in spirit with the music on the back of Caesar's bike through Ballona Creek.. and possibly meet up with you guys after GOGA.. who knows.. maybe we'll run into each other..
But.. I WILL be there next week, promise.. isn't something special happening on the 12th.. I have that marked on my calendar.. can't remember.
RIDE ON !!! RIDE ON !!! RIDE ON !!! RIDE ON !!! RIDE ON !!! RIDE ON !!!

I'm gonna meet up with you guys a little late this week. I'll be getting off work pretty close to the start time so I'm planning to ride around downtown with raquel and matt for a bit before I head to the west side. I'll call somebody on my way to find out where you are.
After a lot of time of thinking about this and talking with the other organizers of our bike ride and we have come to a decision. I really cannot believe that I have to say this, but IF YOU ARE NOT RIDING A BIKE, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE TACO TUESDAYS BIKE RIDE!!!!! I guess someone must have misunderstood the posting on MIDNIGHT RIDAZZ, IT’S “TACO TUESDAYS BIKE RIDE” ;). We are NOT talking about showing up at the meeting point and hanging out before we leave, that’s totally cool. Look, we spend a lot of time, effort, and money trying to make the ride F.U.N. for everyone and have a goodtime. It’s really, really inconsiderate for a person or people to try to hi-jack or change numerous stops to fit THEIR agenda. If you want to do something else PLEASE DO IT or at least take the time and effort and post your own ride.
I really try to be a kind, helpful, compassionate person (that follows the code of the Midnight Ridazz), but sometimes a person or people will just push too much and try to take advantage of a situation. I am not the fastest rider or best on hills, but I try my best to follow the leaders when I go on their rides, and if I have a problem with a ride, I leave or do my own thing as a consideration and respect for the people who have taken their time and effort to organize the ride. I hate having to post this but:
Everyone (ON BIKES) Welcome!!!
Thank you for having consideration and respect for the ride.
Missed another one. I'm sad because XL's spoke cards are the best. I did pass a group of people heading south on Barrington to what appeared to be the start point at what appeared to be the ride start time that appeared to be people I knew, so I yelled out "HI NIKI" cuz that's the person I immediately recognized. The west side is a small place.
the reason we don't come is cuz we both have full time jobs and drew starts at 7am & i start at 830am so it is hard for us to do the westside thing on weeknights...but i am looking for another job so i will be there soon trust esp now
I terribly regret missing the ride tonight, but my absence was unavoidable. I started to go, but long story short I wound up back at my apartment and there, due to my idiocy, put the first scratch in my $200 powder-coat. a HUGE scratch. I'm still crying. 13 was not lucky for me.
the spoke card was awesome - the graphic was on teh front and the back was info from the ACLU (their contact info) and our rights both for getting searched (what to say / hot to act - what should happen - what will actually happen and how to take note for court appearances) + our rights as a cyclist on these streets here in LA.
super sweet job, XL.. and it's what right where we need'em.
"excuse me, officer." reaches for spoke card, pulls from spokes, "it says here my rights are.."
Gregory is still licking his wounds. And that's not just a phrase. Actually have one pic of him doing it. (hmmm) Guess it's a good a way as any to make the best of a weird fall. He's still trying to figure out why the trash can attacked him, too, and lookng for his bubble wrap for Tuesday.
I'm sitting ths week out... Had surgery on my toes & unless I can find some oversized cycling/spd shoes to fit the bandaging.... maybe next week too.
i am still super hungover from crankmas (really, from the depression of crankmas being over and so i have been drinking every night.. so super sad.. it was such an epic night) but i am dragging myself to Taco Tuesday, cause i love Taco Tuesday.
everyone that can make it should come out and we can all decompress together. 7pm meetup at crank mob park (tears) and we leave at 8 for a super fun ride with bubble wrap!
I will leave campus a lil bit later and meet you guys at mustache bridge.
(I could get there by taking lincoln south to figi, right? heh, I know ive done this a few times, but frequently forget the directions.)
DAMN! DAMN! DAMN! I just broke a spoke riding on Venice. SHIT! I am going to try and get it fixed tomorrow before the ride.
If any one knows where I can get a Shimano Aero spoke for a WH-R550 rear wheel on the west side I will forever be in your dept.
OK, so thats just a figure of speech, but I will buy you a beer on the next ride!
yeah i am coming to my first taco tuesday!!!
i will be there early ( iget off work at 5pm then heading right over nothing else to do)...anyone going to be there right at 7pm or before??? i don't want to sit there forever alone
i got a ride from one of the cats that had a pickup...i think my chain had too much slack. It caught in between my rear tire and the frame...i was only doing 65 mph in a 35 zone!!! I live in inglewood so it was not that far from marina del rey
had i known about the meaning of this taco tuesday, i would have been there had it cost me my pinky toe. my phone was broken and i fell asleep at 830.
so now, wednesday, i sit here, shedding tears of pain, but also tears of joy, because i know how much love you all have for me, and how wholeheartedly that love is returned. but mostly tears of pain. really really intense pain. ubob suggested masturbating until i bleed, but he just wants me to be like he was when he turned 18.
You had me worried, I tried calling your house and left a message, I kept asking everyone if they had seen ya since you were "supposed" to be there at 6. Gotta give a brother a call if ya not making it. Thought you might have been bike jacked and ended up in Tijuana with EddieboyinLA. Well, glad to hear you are ok, "got sick on a bus"? Let us know you are ok after the doctor.
well i got kicked off the bus and had no extra money to take it back to home so i had to ride all the way home when i got home it was 730ish..i just passed out for a while and when i woke i didn't want to bother you durring a ride
Hell fuckin' yeah we are on for next tuesday!
check you email
Not too hard, it will be a gradual grade until we get to Silverlake and then we get a great downhill rollercoaster ride home but not before stopping at the urban light. Medium pace, but really fun. No exact route to be posted, FOLLOW THE LEADERS!!!! I will be bring up the rear so no one gets lost, but if ya do, call me 310-621-1869 XL
West side was going to come to east side to meet up with PTT but XL is sick so westside is going to do their classic route
PTT (east side) is postponed as i do not have a good route yet
and no one is helping me so thus i am postponing it...
O you must come on a Taco Tuesdays one of these times, if only to hear Uncle Richard's train horn on a bike, his constant plentiful and helpful (most of the time) advice through the megaphone, and of course his always interesting use of pyrotechnics ;)
I really really wanted to do the OJ and the Hillz ride, BUT I hurt my leg on Friday night and won't be able to ride TT tonight, so one more CLASSIC TT till I am back in the saddle, BUT when I am back we are going to do 3 crazy ass routes in a row!!!!
BUT I will be at the meet spot to give out spoke cards to all ridazz!!!!
I kinda pulled something in my upper leg on LACM, so I was trying to take it a little easy, we went to the Hollywood Bowl to meet ya guys and ended up waiting an hour or two with Cesar before we headed home. Went to Doc yesterday, said to stay off a bike this week, so sadly I'm riding my computer till next Tuesday. But after that I am going to go Taco Tuesday route crazy!!!
Hey Rachel, it's Rachel! It was my pleasure and it was cool to see you. Even though we didn't totally hang out, I got some really good pictures of your sexy outfit. I'm sure my XL will post them soon. I hope to ride with you on MOMZ someday. See ya
Oh, my Taco Tuesday
i am sorry for my sins of not eating tacos
and in choosing to not eat tacos
and failing to enjoy tacos
i have sinned against you and your tacos
and i firmly intend with the help of your sons: XL, Uncle Richard and Ceasar
i can make up for my non-taco eating
and love eating tacos as i should
So do I get to be the first person to say how cool tonight's ride was? I may have a big ol boo-boo pn my left knee and I never actually saw a taco, but this is definately one of the best rides I've ever done. And I got my picture taken in front of a celebrity's house!
WHAT THESE KIDS NEED IS TO SEE OR BE THE VICTIM OF SOME PHYSICAL BONE BREAKING. YOU LAME ASS MOTHER FUCKERS JUST DON'T GET IT, CATCH THE RING LEADERS, WITCH BY THE WAY ARE NOT 'KID'S' BUT FULL GROWN ADULTS.
BREAK A BONE, THEN CALL THE COPS, SAY THEY BECAME VIOLENT AFTER THEY HEARD YOU CALLING THE COPS, SO YOU HAD TO USE FORCE TO RESTRAIN THEM, AND IF A BONE GETS BROKEN, WHO'S GOING TO CRY, YOU? ME? NOW WAY JOSE, THEY GONNA BE CRYING, SITTING IN THE BACK OF A COP CAR.
AND FOR YOU GENIUSES OUT THERE THAT USE A CABLE TYPE LOCK, NO MATTER WHO THE MANUFACTURER IS, ARE STUPID FOR SUGGESTING AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS TO USE ONE.
HOW HARD COULD IT BE TO SET UP A STING, STRONG ARM THE BUILDING, THEN APPREHEND THE ADULTS?
ACT LIKE YOU HAVE A PAIR, THE COPS AINT GOING TO DO SHIT FOR YOU, AND WHEN THE COPS SHOW UP, WE ALL TELL THE SAME LIE, I'VE DONE IT, I KNOW.
SURLY THESE HIPSTER RIDING WHITE VICTEMS MUST BE TELLING THE TRUTH. --THAT'S WHAT COPS ARE GOING TO THINK.
BECAUSE IF YOUR NOT WHITE, BUT YOU DRESS LIKE A HIPSTER, THAT'S GOTTA BE MORE LIKE THE TRUTH, EPICALLY IF YOU GOT PICS, SHOWING THE THIEVES IN ACTION,
COME ON YOU SORRY ASS PAPPARAZZI, PULL OUT THAT CAMERA, AND TAKE SOME REAL PICTURES, AND VIDEO.
the primary function of my camera is ballast and counter- balancing...video is a side benefit. i want a helmet cam that i can stick to my face and control with my thoughts and eye movements. gov'ment probably has those too.
