THIS FRIDAY EVENING (2-3-06) we will be having the ride for February called
"SEX, SEXUALITY and LOVE" (aka, "the RideArc Sex Ride"). 9 PM @ the Mobile Gas Station, La Brea + Sunset

In the mood for some lovin'? Ride with us as we explore the aspects of sex, sexuality and love in architecture and LA's built landscape...
(This route will be really fun!! We're really excited to be having this ride!!)

Weather: The evenings have been a bit crisp and cooler recently, so a light jacket/hoodie or equivalent may be suggested. Light gloves can also help keep your hands warm. Night temperatures are expected around 60 F.

THE MEETING PLACE FOR THIS RIDE IS AT SUNSET + LA BREA at the Mobile Gas Station at 9PM
Map: http://tinyurl.com/b69q7

Getting to the meeting place:
- No car? Take the Red Line to Hollywood + Highland, take Hollywood Blvd west, left on La Brea - Mobile Station is south of Sunset.
- Driving/carpooling there? Street parking is available on local streets and there are some meters (free!) along Sunset.

Hey, wouldn't it be great to see a gas station packed full of people on bikes rather than those gas-guzzling cars?

The route is approximately 16 miles, has a few light hills and is round-trip (we end where we start).

There are no requirements of ability or skill to ride with everyone - just bring your own bike! Any bike! Road, MTB, Fixed Gear, BMX, Cruisers, Choppers, LowRiders...

It is open to anyone and everyone! Bring your friends, family, significant others!
A helmet is a good idea if you've got one, but it is optional and we ride safely. If you've got a light, bring it lit up - the more the better.
No rider left behind!

For more information, you can e-mail us at: ridearc@gmail.com

I think passports are the way to go. New border security initiatives all 'round have screwed things up large. I just found out myself.... I wonder if the site has been updated.

Just be certain of your plans when talking to border patrol, i.e. this is where we are going, here is where we are staying and this is when we will be leaving.
