Many of you who I've been riding with, regularly, know this by now, I'm moving to Lagos, Nigeria on Friday for work.
I wanted to take a minute or two to thank this community and what it has done for me. A little token of my appreciation for the vast amounts I have gotten out of Midnight Ridazz. First off, I'm in the best shape of my life, I've had to re-stock my entire wardrobe with smaller shirts, and tighter pants. I have the stamina of a horse, and legs of some sort of beast with strong legs. And even though I grew up here I've experienced this city in ways I couldn't have ever imagined. But most importantly, MR has allowed me to experience all this with some excellent and amazing people that I've met along the way. The rides would not have been what they were without your good selves being present.
Special shout out to all my peoples on Taco Tuesday, they really got me into riding. XL is a fantastic leader who's consistently puts on good rides week in and week out. I looked forward to Tuesday every week ever since I started riding with MR because you guys were such a great crowd. I made some very good friends on TT, you know who you are!. Another thank you to the people who put on R0b0tz, Alex Thompson and volunteers. A true adventure awaits me every time I decided to participate in R0b0tz, not to mention a demanding ride that requires commitment! Also, the people who put on Crank Mob, thank you very much, if I hadn't been driving around at 2am on a September evening and ran into you by pure chance in an Albertsons' parking lot, I don't know that I would have ever found MR!
A lot of you have been asking what I will be doing in Lagos. Below is the CNN special on the project that I will be working on. I am spear heading sales for this big ass real estate project. Building databases, client networks, marketing material, upgrading the website, training sales people. I expect to be over there for 2-3 years while I get this all done. After which I hope to return to my life here.
I will miss you all very very much, and I can't wait until December when I come back for vacation. You have all provided me with many experiences and memories that I will cherish. I've made some great friends that I look forward to keeping in touch with.
All my best to you all and this community
P.S. If anyone is going to Europe in Sept/Oct, let me know, I might come meet you.
there is something to say about the personalities of MR - we characters unafraid to be ourselves and by doing so open doors to relationships through amazing friendships we would otherwise have missed. Marc you are one of these beautiful people that i have come to know and love riding with. always i feel safe. always a joy on Taco Tuesday. always a pleasure. you and who you are will be missed. your energy will be missing in our family, but your spirit will ride with us.. always.
