Ah yes, it's all about the food in your stomach.

THIS FRIDAY EVENING (3-3-06) we will be having the ride for March called
"HUMAN FEED"
(aka, "I grow it myself")
(aka, "Meet your Meat")
(aka, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing")
(aka, "Wow that smells good")
(aka, "Wow that smells like....")
(aka, "You are what you eat")
(aka, "Lost in the process of processed foods")

9 PM @ the SCI-Arc parking lot, corner of Traction & Merrick in the "Artists District"

There are roughly 18 Million People in the greater Los Angeles area... and they all need to eat. Where does all that food come from? Ride with us as we explore the sites, sounds, and smells of one of the largest Food Provision industries in the United States and it's woven fabric into life in Los Angeles.

Weather: Yes, it's true! As we are writing this, the sky IS falling! Who knew? But doing a little research with our comrades at National Weather Service and the UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, Friday evening should be partly cloudy with little-to-no rain. Of course, it will be "cold." We're not talking North Dakota-I-can't-find-my-house-in-the-snow kinda cold, but it will be in the mid 50's. Biking will warm you up! Gloves recommended.

THE MEETING PLACE FOR THIS RIDE IS AT THE SCI-ARC PARKING LOT, 9 PM
Map: http://tinyurl.com/jv5pg

Getting to the meeting place:
- No car? Take the Red or Gold Line to Union Station -> Alameda South -> Left on Traction (just after 2nd Street) -> end of the street.
- Driving/carpooling there? PLENTY of parking available at the school that never sleeps.

The route is smooth and will take us to many unique and unexplored neighborhoods. Some portions will be dark, so if you've got a light!


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

as i understand it, there were problems getting someone to take charge of it. someone has stepped up to the plate, but i haven't gotten any updated information about a date or any such. i'll keep you posted.

Hey everyone, wanted to give you guys a heads up on this early so everyone can make it. The jersey kids are having an alleycat. Most of our races don't get much out of town action, but I would love to see the philly and new york guys come in for this. Think of it as a totally level playing field since chances are high none of you have ridden here before.

I saw a flyer for a pirate themed (Pirates of the Embarcadero) ride in San Francisco on March 10th or 11th. Does anyone have more specifics on this ride or the url of the group who is organizing it?

Can't wait to hear about the scandal surrounding this race! Imagine racing from Manhattan to the hamptons, and when you got there you had to pick a number between 1 and 100 to decide who the winner is! This race was that lame! The fastest riders (who happened to win on fix) were not the winners of the race, all the bike forums nerds won because they had the best poker hand based on drawing cards at each checkpoint. how lame is that?? very. I'm sure the messenger community will further themselves from the bf community even more after a dumb stunt like this one. truly one to go down in the history books!! congrats nerds!

There were only two people who won anything because of poker hand, the top finishers won quite a bit of stuff. ****, I even begged a frame out of waterford for the first place finisher. Just because the custom build went to best poker hand doesn't mean that no one else won anything, quite the opposite. Whatever, lots of people got lots of stuff (there were 8 shimano pedal/shoe combos among other things) but I guess some people will always ***** and moan...
