thank you to everyone who helped - all the organizers and helpers. the murderous intent could not have been followed through without such willing and uberness of awesome accomplices. thank you.

and thank you to everyone who came out and participated in the slaying. PIKSHURES or it didn't happen!

highlights: i can't remember. the last thing i remember: sleeping at the iHop in a giant booth at 8am.

Most fun day of my entire life, ever. Filled to the brim with joy and delight, and worn with foggy memories. Every bit of the day from starting in the valley, the train ride, the ride thru hollywood, hanging out in the sun at the park, endless hello's and smiles and laughs and the electricity of Robotz and going all over town and meeting up with all the rides again and watching everyone happy and playful and in love with life and riding, the momsey, oh the momsey and our crazy adventures, and that scary as shit hill into downtown, and the party the party the after party so many beautiful people and an epically fantastic time. Spinning in the rolling chairs inside, whizzing past Julia Meow, watching the room twirl past and remembering what it was like to be small and have the entire world where everything is a toy. Everything played out so perfectly, let's not forget the chaotic beauty of Funderstorm and waking up with so much paint everywhere. Thank you, everyone.

I want to thank Alex, Kieron, Jaz, Katie, E-Rock, Johnny, Sarah, Matt, the other Alex, Paul, Scotty, Stephanie, Lance, Momz, Mihai, and, and...uh, I hope I'm not forgetting anyone...for the insane amount of hard work you guys all put in over the last few months to make Saturday as smoothly and funly as it did.

I'm still coming down off the high from Saturday. Holy fuck was I tired on Sunday. Thanks to everyone who came out and thanks also to the riders who came on the F'N Ride! :)

The wetside watergun ride was my favorite portion of the day. I will post the pictures from this soon, it's crazy just how happy EVERYONE is in these photos. Everyone looks all drugged up and smiley like the music video for Black Hole Sun.

Those of you talking about when the next one will be, luckily you wont have to wait that long- we are already in talks for putting another event on. I won't say when because it's not finalized by any means, but we'd love to have all of you out again for another full day of happies!

TheRaquel,

Yeah I roll up and first one to greet me was Alex Thompson. First thing out his mouth, "you're not allow here!" LOL it's a fucking public street! Then after about saying it five times, he tells me I'm not allowed inside. Well that's like throwing down the gauntlet for me! :D So after hanging around outside for awhile, I decided I wanted to see what was inside. It was time for to get into my ninja mode! So I scooped out the defense and planned my attack. Got in with all the chaos of them wanting everyone inside, (to buy their over-priced beer is my guess!). Well after hanging out inside and buying one leftover saint patricks day green beer, and listening to a pretty mediocre band (not Fstorm), it looked to me like the party was on the outside! So back outside I was! I'm sure Fstorm kick ass, but I had to catch a train. So I missed that part. I can tell you personally about what I thought about the whole 328 day and that party if you like. Seems like around here, you have to just say nice things or nothing at all. Truthfulness takes a back seat! Oh well..................

The afterparty was pretty cool but the riding portion was by far the best part in my opinion. Unfortunately Alex told me that the afterparty was what caused him the most stress.

It was seriously cool how all the rides were lined up like fireworks ready to be set off! So much energy, so much collaboration- and it all went on without a hitch- all the way to the end.

There is not an all-Exclusive policy towards shoplifers. If you steal from stores while we are stopped there, you will be singled out and excluded.

There is not an all-Exclusive policy towards medical transport vehicles who try to run us down. Seems this guy got his ass kicked and wasn't invited to the party.

There is not an all-Exclusive policy towards drunkards and idiots who cause crashes and don't hold their line. You can't come to the party if you are puking on everyone.

I don't get this attitude of "if I act like an asshole, you have to accept me because you are all-Exclusive". That doesn't wash.

Either adjust your attitude or everyone will turn their collective backs to you.

I wasn't at this party, but a party is usually only for those who don't spit in people's face.

Agreed, so why did we get spat on with all the spamming leading up to the 328?

btw, do you even know why I was supposedly banded from coming in?

While we're on the subject of questioning people's actions. What was with all the cars there? I thought this was a all day riding thing? Btw2, I wasn't the only one that mentioned this.

And urbanpedal, where's your questioning of selling ridazz beer that no business would be able to give away? Selling 16oz of green beer, where 1/4 of it was foam, for $3? Couldn't that be listed in evil deeds above?

User1 I thought you were done trolling about 328?

...anyway

Definitely pleased about how smoothly the whole thing went, especially considering the fact that this was a first for this kind of multi-ride multi-stop concept.

There will be more of these big all day events to come, and this first one was a huge learning experience despite the fact that it went well. Hopefully the next one is even better :)

@user1
all the cars are from something else. people besides bike people do exist in this world including in that warehouse area.

im not saying i want YOU banned from events but your negative attitude has got to go. if you stared out with all the negativity on the forums about it, it would no doubt follow you when you show up to the afterparty that is going on. it puts a damper on all the work that was done when there is a naysayer in your ear.

please direct all passive aggressive public forum commentary towards ME for this comment, where, no doubt, feelings will be hurt, words will be misinterpreted, and animosity will brew even further, even though i think we have been face to face about twice.

about the cars... wasnt it apparent that there was another event going on at that area at the same time? the people in the cars were definitely not bikers trying to get into the biking party.

or were u too busy being a pissy face to notice it?

Kinda figures the messager gets attacked and instead of dealing with the message.

Those cars were not cars that are part of that building. Those cars were from ridazz. Yeah cars exist and ridazz have cars, etc etc., but wasn't this a bike event where we rode bikes all day? Or at least you guys did, I did other things. I'm by that place just about weekly, there's never even cars parked around the building, much less cars parked across the street! And we aren't talking a few cars here either. Actually it was someone else that pointed this out first, not me. I just agreed with his observation.

And if you can't deal with the truth, don't read what I've got to say. So far there hasn't been one issue addressed that I mentioned, but there's been two attacks on me, by two people. What's it going to be now?

All of these "issues" you're talking are just endless bitching. Nothing special or even worth reading, especially considering your track record.

If the "issues" came from a respectable source, maybe they would hold more importance to me (or anyone for that matter)?

Loser1 voted by not attending any rides on 328 and bitching about not showing up.
Everyone else voted by having a great time.
Thanks to all the organizers

actually i did respond to parts of your question- one being why you were banned from the party and that has to do with you and others and the dynamic that has thus ensued.

sure some ridazz may have driven. a friend was sick and was invited to 328 and still wanted stop in and say hi. we had people who played instruments or brought equipment for the event. there were people who had previous engagements and still wanted to show up and may have gotten a lift from people.
we encourage cycling, but sometimes its not always the most accessible option.

im gonna go ahead and stop responding to this on this thread. @user1 if you would like to create a thread about your qualms with 328, or your being attacked for having said qulams and/or questions, that would be cool. but 328 was amazing for a lot of people, and that is what this thread is about.

cuz 328 was a great day. we all had fun. us organizers stressed abit, but it ended up being so wonderful. i look forward to being a part of events like these for many bike days to come.

Fluffa, I did show up at the part I wanted to, the end party. The other stuff I had other stuff to do, so I didn't do the rides. I just didn't know the party was put on by AT. I thought it was it was group of people.

Regardless of the source Jonny, it doesn't change the fact that rejected beer was sold at inflated prices. I mean sure, you could argue that no one had to buy the crap, no one had to pay to get in, etc etc, but you had a captive audience.

Finally in regards to credibility, you'll never find me over hyping something, cause basically I find it distasteful. It's a form of lying. That's how someone looses credibility real fast.

on Friday when dropping off and setting up at the party space, the owner of the space received a memo stating that there was going to be a party around the corner and the parking spaces in front of his space would be used.

there was concern about this because we wanted outdoor space for ridazz to not only smoke but not feel crowded when using the port o potties that were delivered earlier that day.

so, the owner of the building asked that we have someone yellow tape an area and keep and eye on the space so that we would have that outdoor section.

Albert Tu and Justin Jacobson, were amazing enough to leave the 328 ride early and yellow caution tape the area from 6pm till we arrived at 10pm.

when planning such events and parties, there are many tiny and HUGE problems, complications and small humps you must get through in order for the whole day / night to come together.

none of this would have been accomplished if not for everyone involved. and i thank them.

OK so that may explain the cars parked next to the port a potties . We saw two cars with ridazz sitting on them. Hard to tell which were ridazz cars and which weren't.

@everyone

I'm so geeked that we pulled it off and were able to do the multiple ride thing without one injury or ticket! Y'all were fun to ride with, and 328 volunteers and CoN were amazing. I look forward to doing it again.



@User1

OH man - I'm so giddy! I've been totally waiting for this shoe to drop.

Yes, I banned User1 from the party, as I promised when he acted so disruptively last week. I most enjoyed how he rolled up to the party, after not doing one yard of the ride he tried to derail. When I explained that he could not go into the party he whined "it's not your party man", a poor imitation of the Dude, albeit less coherent. Where the Dude abides, User1 cried, and lobbied with other Ridazz to get himself in. I'm not surprised that he entered regardless . . . and though I was considering lifting my User1 ban, in those cases where I'm able, he will continue to be banned. User1, if you want to get out of timeout, nastiness and ongoing grandstanding are not steps in the right direction.

There were two other parties in the area, which is why the parking lot was so full. We sent to volunteers - Albert Tu and Justin Jakobson - ahead to rope off that small area for bikes, just so we could have a place to put our bikes. They missed most of the last half of the ride to do that - guys - I really appreciate your efforts.

Green beer is fun. We tried it out cause it saved us $40 and we thought Ridazz of all people would appreciate it as hilarious. In retrospect it may have been a misstep.

We got the warehouse space for free. You gotta wonder how that happens. It happens because Trickmilla vouched for us, and because the venue operators - Chiparaki - take the money from the bar, minus what we paid for the alcohol. Typically they charge $5 a beer, and a lot for other drinks. Knowing this, I was able to negotiate $2 beers, and cheap shots. The addition of $3 beers to the menu was outside my control. In the end, CoN still took a big hit financially to put this on.

We, CoN, learned a lot from this, and I think we could pull it off a million times better next time around, and we plan on it. Personally, I've never thrown a party other than a kegger for math geeks at my house . . . so this was a challenge. I think we rose to it pretty well, and I'm absolutely stunned at the musicians that JAZ and Cameron were able to pull on such short notice.

And to answer you query about board spam: Only about 9 threads were posted about 328 by organizers. Considering that most rides have two threads, and that CRANK MOB has 4 or 5 typically, and that 328 had an unprecedented scope of involvement and scope of riding, I think this is appropriate.

The other threads were not ours.

Now, User1, when did you become the enforcer of forum etiquette? Last I checked you showed little to no self control in your own posting, bringing negativity and ceaseless argumentativeness to almost every thread you participate in.



Alex Thompson

AT, I'm not an enforcer of forum etiquettes. I just happen to be one of the ones on here that snapped with all you guys spamming. And sorry, just because it wasn't one of your organizers spamming, which I'm not about to go back and check if it was or not, it doesn't leave you off the hook. Other than me and a couple of others on here, you guys never tried to stem the flow of spam. Doing a quick search showed that there was about 16 threads with "328" in it before the event. This was after RB deleted 2-3 times that much.

And since when showing positivity a sign of control? It maybe more of a sign of sheepishness to me! Sign of a lack of conviction in one's beliefs. You may find that appealing, I don't. You have a certain thread in mind that you object to what I posted? Which one(s) and I'll discuss it.

Great job guys! My only regret was that I wasn't able to start at Venice and ride all day with you, I really wish I were a clone rida so I could have gone to every ride.

@user1- I remember double checking at the time of the spamming. It was done by one person, not one of the ride organizers. And it was done at a quite admirable rate- there wouldn't have been time for the ride organizers to try and stop the spammer before you blew up at them.

@user1

If you weren't such a dick you would have gotten in. It wasn't a purely Alex Thompson backed idea. You are a dick, and many people agree that banning you was a good idea. Really, you want be a troll, then fine, be one, I don't care, but when you attack a ride by spreading misinformation you are hurting the work of people who spent a lot of time on this ride. Being a dick does not mean you get to fuck us. Alex Thompson was not the only organizer and thus you did not only hurt him, but the groups of people who struggled for weeks to put this together.

I'm glad you were banned by Alex Thompson and if I had the chance, I would have done the same thing he did.

Until you learn to respect other people, I see no reason why anyone should respect you.

@tinycities, you can't simultaneously ask someone to shut up and ask them a question at the same time. Well you could, but you can't expect them to do as you asked. It's both a logistic and ethical problem. I'm guessing you haven't had anything like that in design school? And I invite you to show me where I said the ride wasn't any good, as you stated.

You guys want to know what a good ride is? Click Brad's link above. Also see here.

@greeezybear, No being a dick is misrepresenting someone's words and calling them a dick after you do it! Where did I say musicians were crappy? I'll save you the time, you won't find it. I said, "and listening to a pretty mediocre band (not Fstorm)."

Personally what I find rather funny, is the inability of some people to read!
