Ridazz Roulette!




What’s your name (optional) and/or your Midnight Ridazz log-in name?

How did you first hear about Midnight Ridazz and what was your first group bike ride?
1st Q: Long story. In short, a friend. 2nd Q: My first group ride was rad! I rode a BMX almost 30 miles that night.

Currently what rides do you attend regularly and what ride(s) would you like to see make a comeback?
I don't ride as much as I used to but some rides I like to attend on the regular are: Midnight Ridazz, Ride With No Name, Imachynna-Syndrome (Cruss Mob). When I'm not in school I try to make it to every ride I can.

What advice would you pass on to new ridazz?
Number one is love everyone for who they are and what they do and number two is step up to make things happen. (That is assuming they know how to properly ride in a group... if not, that's a whole other lesson.)

If you were leading a group ride, what would you do differently?
I have led several group rides. One thing I would like to do differently is set up a better team of people. For one I'd love a support vehicle. Second I REALLY need a megaphone. Also I'm kind of interested in feeling the pain of hosting a monthly ride.

Do you prefer small rides (30 or less people) or larger rides and why?
I love both for different reasons. The larger rides are really a thing to experience. It's really amazing to be in a sea traveling the streets. On the other hand, smaller rides bring you closer to others and enable you to do some things you can't with 100 people.

Tell us about the best and worst experience you’ve encountered on a group ride.
Best? Oh my god that is impossible. Everyone has their stories. Right now I'm totally reminiscing of this time Fuzzbeast led me and a few other people through about 50 miles of daytime riding. We rode from the valley to Hollywood to Santa Monica and back. Worst... worst would be anytime I am behind a crash or have to witness a crash. I feel like a fucking nurse because every time this happens my heart breaks and I have to stop and try and help. One of the worst experiences though was when... oh nevermind let's forget about it.

What did you do for fun before you started “riding”?
I rode around Downtown with my best friend Maya and looked for strangers.

What’s the best and worst thing group bike rides have done for cycling as a whole in Los Angeles?
Yeah yeah yeah

If you can name 1 person who embodies the spirit of “Midnight Ridazz”, Who would it be and Why?
Joe motherfucking Borfo.

What do you think the public’s perception is of group bike rides?
It depends what they see first, the tall bikes or the asshole riding on the wrong side of the road.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Yes but I don't really know what. Well, I know that I'm going to finish this interview and regret not being funnier.
