Not for me. I have a hard time at rides with kids and too many unexperienced riders. Not to be snobbish, just safe. I almost died 6 times on the LA Marathon ride!

A relaxed ride and ice cream sounds fabulous! Unfortunately, I'm already roped into a ride for this Sunday. I think something along these lines would make for a great BF social ride sometime.

If anybody wants to eat ice cream and then ride up a hill on Saturday night (the 20th), be at Scoops, on Heliotrope just north of Melrose, at 6:00 PM. At 7:00 we're going to ride up to the Observatory, so as to have a good view of the Lights Out LA event--either its stunning success or its stunning failure, we don't care which.

This is not a True Roadie ride, but all are welcome.

Well, we did talk about the Baskin Robbins 31 repeats of Torrey Pines!

A century takes too long. Leaves too little time for ice cream. I was thinking more like 5-20 miles. Leaves more time for ice cream.

YAY.

I neglected to mention it in the ride calendar listing, but riders are encouraged to wear black, use the darkest-colored bikes they feel comfortable riding up a hill, and mask up with black bandannas if they have them (they're, like, two bucks at any army surplus store). It wouldn't be an LA urban social bike ride without a sickeningly cute theme.

Pink bike not ready yet?

Too far for me. You all have fun!

Too bad not many rides of this type are held in SD.

Cancel them. This is going to be epic. Brief, but epic. If such a thing is possible, which it isn't.

The weather is going to be perfect this evening. I'm still in for the observatory night ride. Anyone else doing this ride?
