midnight ridazz: la noche de los biciclistos muertos - 11.09.07

F'REAL



meeting near the corner of san fernando road and fletcher in 90065.
http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=1420853
its a HUGE parking lot where the k-mart used to be and right next to the mcdonalds.
i suggest that you park on the south side of gletcher before the bridge and before san fernando road.
or you can park on a small street called roswell right off of san fernando road near fletcher.


shirts are for sale again. price not set. most likely 10 bucks again.
sizes small, medium, large, XL, and XXL again... maybe even girl sizes too.
ALL SHIRTS to be sold on the night of the ride ONLY. there will be a line, and we will be there early.

part 2 of last year's "la noche de los biciclistas muertos" ride.

Love the T-shirt. Unfortunately for me it's way to far to go to get one. Have fun.

It's on our way up to the Solvang century. Timing is off though... and it'll be a pain to get up the next day for the ride.

Have fun!

If I get home from work in time I might be able to make it. The start area is close to my house.

Just be aware that the KMart parking lot is closed to cars, and side street parking is not that plentiful in the area. If you're driving in, be prepared to hunt for parking.

Wish I didn't already have plans for tonight, it's just across the river from me.

Have a great ride.

If I can make it and spot you I certainly will. Will you be in skeletons? I'll be in my red-stared jersey representing my brothers and sister here.

I think they did that for our Chicano friends who don't speak Spanish.

Thanks for the heads up on the parking. A bunch of us are going in one truck...

Sorry you'll miss it,

I'm still stuck at work sweeping hair. I don't think I'm going to make it for the ride. But I will stop by tomorrow afternoon to say hello over some ice cream and coffee.
