Going to have to miss it this year . I went last year with another local cycling buddy. We made a day of it and rode out to Hollywood from Redlands. He on his roadie commuter, me on my fixed-gear. We split ways after the show. Whereupon, I went to stay with a friend of mine in Echo Park, and he crashed at his friend's house in Pasadena. Without really planning it, we ended up on the same metro train back the next day.

To add to the anti-car theme of the weekend, the guy I rode down there with has a friend (Same one he stayed with in Pasadena.), who reconstructs car crashes for a living. We stopped on the way out there and checked out his giant warehouse in Irwindale (For you SoCal denizens, it's right down by the big Budweiser (Or is it Miller? I dunno, I don't drink that watery crap.) brewery off the 210.) full of mangled cars. A new arrival was being delivered as we arrived. Somewhere there's a picture of me standing next to the burned out husk of a van on the back of a flatbed while pointing at the "Cars-R-Coffins" sticker on my bag .

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year. Prior commitments.
