    Night Ride, Week of 10/30

    Nightride: Wednesday, November 1st: meet at the Pickwick Bowling Alley Parking lot on Riverside Drive, The address to the alley is: 1001 W Riverside Dr., Burbank, CA 91506-3212.

    Just so you know, Pickwick is 2.2 miles from the entrance of GP (Zoo Drive) which will give those of us driving a bit of a warm up before we start climbing. If you are riding over and do not want to meet at Pickwick, please just be at the corner of Zoo Drive and Forest Lawn Drive (Travel Town) between 7:45 and 8:00 p.m. (call me on my cell phone to receive ETA if you'd like).

    I'll go if you pick me up. I should mention I will be in Dallas if that matters.

    So, does this mean you're a strong maybe? Oh...I guess that joke doesn't work since I'm sure not flying to Dallas! You'll just have to make the next one.

    sign me up. I'll try to be at the right place at the right time this time. Griffith Park again would be cool-- even if it's a repeat it's nice that there's so little traffic.

    Great, guys. So for sure, Weds. at 7:30 p.m., meet at Pickwick. We can change up the route if we want, but I kind of liked the route the last time. It was even fun coming back on the bike trail and traffic on Los Feliz wasn't horrendous. But we can switch it up too.

    I have Fixer, Bitingduck and me so far. Any other takers?

    I might take it if my wife is ok with an early dinner. But for now just count me as a maybe. I usually do a 1 hour loop at 4:00. Should I be getting a light for this? So far, I just have a blinking taillight that needs a battery.

    Hi UK, you would definitely need a light for this ride. I sold my extra one, so I don't have one to loan you. Someone else may, but I just posted this today and it's been sloooowww on here (a lot of people are out riding where I wish I had been!). We may get more takers, and one of them may have a light to loan you until you get one. I hope you can join.

    I can't make it this week as I'm headed out to Chicago. If this becomes a regular event, I'll definitely make it when the ride is at Griffith Park. Pasadena and points east are a little far for me on a work night.

    I'm definitely trying to get this to become a regular event. Of course, when we head into December, some participation may drop off. But I ride year round, so when I'm in town and can do it (couldn't this past week due to illness), I'll be jonesing to ride.

    Yes, it is a road ride up into a canyon with very little traffic (so you need a good light). But you are more than welcome to join. It's a nice ride!

    m.e. what would be very cool for a night December ride is some Candy Cane Lane. There is one in Woodland Hills that is pretty good (well, it used to be anyway, I haven't been since there really was a manger)

    I had to edit my post to put in the missing word but you 'quoted' me too quickly. Perhaps I should learn to read first and then hit Submit

    I am the idea man. We need an implementer. Oh, I know, YOU


    I can't get bogged in the implementation details, I may not have any more good ideas, ever.

    Sorry to hear, Sal. I just went through being sick myself. Hope you feel better (most important) and can join.

    Either night is good for me. A different route would be fine as well, just to mix it up a bit.

    have fun on your night ride m.e i just bought a new light for my bike and will resume my night rides soon (im feeling much more confident after surgery now - it doesnt hurt to cough anymore so i figure im nearly fully better)

    just cos its a night ride doesnt mean we dont expect pics!!! (keep the clothes on though folks )
