Due to the magnitude of this ride, I decided to push it back. Don't make this mistake of missing this one. Hereforth, Los Angelopes will take place every ODD month, instead of trying to make every month odd. Get it? Har.
...THE LOS ANGELOPES!!
SATURDAY MARCH 7TH!!!
YAY TO THE DAY TIME! MEAT AT 12PM / RIDE AT 2PM!
NEW MEETING POINT! SOMEWHERE ON THE WEST SIDE!!! DONT fluk UP!
HOW WE ROLL
YOU CANT EAT TRASH
WITH A PAW IN YOUR MOUFF
IF YOU HAVEN'T LEARNED TO TRUST ME COMPLETELY AND WITHOUT QUESTION THEN YOU HAVEN'T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION
Today, I'm not going to talk about the things you'll need to bring to this ride: water, tubes, good attitude, blah. I am going to tell you this: You are going to need to have a talk with yourself before going to this ride.
You're going to have to ask yourself things like, "What scares me most?" and "Why do I trust anyone in the bike scene to lead me anywhere?" and "Do rides imitate life, or does life imitate rides?" and "What was my first impression of Los Angeles?" and "Have I made enough good decisions in my life to be comfortable with my passing?" and so on.
Eventually, you'll find peace. Bring that. Get close to it. Hold on to it.
THE LOS ANGELOPES. Typically this is the part where I say: We ride freak-bikes, we are freaks riding bikes. Bring your tall bikes, small bikes, your best animal gear, and your YELLING lungs! This is the ride and route designed to be a spectacle. We will RIDE 15 miles at a VERY VERY SLOW pace to populated blocks and expand on their idea of fun! We are fun! WE ARE LOS ANGELOPES!!!! IF YOU LIKE THE CUBZZ, CRANK MOB, or WETSIDE, expect those energy levels! ... and so on until you know to expect a really happy day-long event. Well, fuck all that. I dont care about your fun. I want your body. I am the future. I will direct you to the exits out of the past.
You need to be checking this thread for updates from me.
There are going to be some pre-requisites for this ride. I will give them to you as they come. Please dont ignore them or I can't let you come on the ride. Celery.

typical westside ride. Announced Anarchy and Craziness, high energy control with too many rules.
Count me out!

first rule is for sexy:
no irony in your forum replies.
01.20.09 - 3:39 pm
UnGelopes on the west side in the sun will be so much fun.
01.20.09 - 3:41 pm
when i came out of my mom i just wanted to be a freak and have a bike and be able to say i am a freak on a bike

Los Angelopes should be monthly...so should Friends of the Friendless.
Magnitude? wtf? come on man.....do it in February.
01.29.09 - 9:08 am
If you let me cut your hair monthly, I'll make Friends Of The Friendless monthly.
01.29.09 - 9:25 am
there are enough rides already. Every other month gives us a chance to make it that much better.
01.29.09 - 12:21 pm
good idea, but let's start skipping months in march. eh? eh?
01.29.09 - 12:44 pm
brsknkl---what ever happened to the MR/lsangelops/BM raffle tall bike? Did it get given away? What did you use the money for?
01.29.09 - 12:52 pm
it was given away. Sparky won. Funds went to the Burning Man camp.
01.29.09 - 1:11 pm
Feb can't happen because i will be scouting for the Salton Sea trip on Feb 7. The march 7 ride is too good for us to not put the time and effort into scouting and setting it up properly.
Future Angelope Dates:
July 4 (maybe we will change this one)
01.29.09 - 1:14 pm
Build a freak bike and then
make suggestions to Los Angelopes. Yes I'm calling yall out :)
01.29.09 - 2:58 pm
no way you're cutting my hair....i just did it myself 2 days ago anyhow....
01.29.09 - 4:11 pm
6 is not enough! I love you Barleye. There will be more. Marcus is hinting at something- freakbike only rides, tallbike only rides, special events, club stuff. Start building your freakbikes. You’ll need them.
01.29.09 - 8:01 pm
my angelope's been hybernating too long....i'll wake it up this saturday.
03.2.09 - 9:11 am
dang it Barleye. I came to this thread with some bad news. Due to (potential) rain, we have to postpone the ride to 3/14.
TRUST ME on this. I am sorry this ride is being pushed back but its gotta be done right in order to work.
i'll post more details this week.
03.2.09 - 10:40 am
3/12: friends of the friendless (DTLA)
3/13: revenge of the nerds
3/14: los ungelopes
3/20: the ride with no name
3/21: c.r.a.n.k. mob
03.2.09 - 10:46 am
Ride postponed. We seriously cant risk it with this ride. That part where it says "TRUST ME" is intentional.
03.2.09 - 11:10 am
Thanx fer chainging the date Marcus, I'm gonna be in PDX on business this weekend actually. The business of Hardcourt Bicycle Polo... At the Oregon State Championships!
03.2.09 - 11:17 am
we should have a build day soon. I got some stuff that needs finishing/doing
03.2.09 - 2:13 pm
accuweather.com says no rain on sat. Let's hope it stays that way.
03.2.09 - 11:43 pm
Is it still "postponed"? Because I see it up on the right of this page.
Angelopes posponed, formal postponed... MAN!
03.3.09 - 11:57 am
better change that ish, fool.
03.3.09 - 12:02 pm
It's so sunny outside. I'm going to laugh when it rains next week. I was going to ride a little kids bmx and do trix!
03.7.09 - 12:48 pm
Ok. Here's the deal...
This is not your average Los Angelopes ride. Its not even a freak bike ride. This isn't even a bike ride. In fact, EVERY TYPE OF BIKE IS WELCOME! This is Los Angelopes Level 3: public event - any bike welcome.
I am going to reinvent Los Angeles for you. I have the keys to this city. If you dont believe me, don't come.
I am not going to announce the starting point on Midnight Ridazz, but will instead be EMAILING the info to people who RSVP their email to me, Friday morning. The start will be on the westside. I don't want a huge ride.
Included in my reply email will be a form which you will have to sign to become involved in this. Yes, this Los Ungelopes begins a new era for Los Angeles, and I am willing to let you be part of it. You will be committing to Los Angelopes hours of your time in the future. This will be explained in the form.
You want in, email me:
03.11.09 - 12:01 pm
Is taht you Marcus? Aww tahts cute.
03.11.09 - 2:39 pm
people like me need people like you to post pictures like that...
03.11.09 - 3:03 pm
I may have posted this before ----->
03.11.09 - 3:26 pm
whats up with the baby tiny mustaches
03.11.09 - 3:37 pm
LET'S SEE YOUR OLD ASS HIGH PICTURES....cowboy boots I bet...
03.11.09 - 3:41 pm
special mailing list? cause u dont want the ride to be huge? that's kinda bunk. what if it gets big over time again? i dont get the point of the secrecy... especially if you're telling us flat out that every bicycle is welcome
03.11.09 - 6:27 pm
Secrecy makes me feel special. I mean hes not nay saying anyone hes just like "hey, lemme know"...everyones welcome if they are aware and are intimate with their bicycles.
03.11.09 - 6:30 pm
its just for this saturday. Los Angelopes will be doing huge rides and events too.
03.11.09 - 6:57 pm
I'm legally bound not to say anything about the ride, but what do I do with last month's pictures?
04.1.09 - 3:47 pm
All disclosure is legally-bound to not be disclosed until further notice by Disclosing Party. Speaking of party, be looking for an email regarding this Ungelopes very soon.
04.1.09 - 5:31 pm
will it be a secret underground kind of thing on a closed email list?
