    all i know is theyve gotten in my way whilst heading home. they get together over at the corner of woodley and victory...never done a ride with them so i cant comment on that. for more info try calling atomic bikes on saticoy in van nuys, they have something to do with it!!
    Mistakes are just fine. Just don't make excuses....

    From what I understand, it's a protest against motorists and they usually break all sorts of traffic laws in the process. Not my way of trying to earn respect from motorists, but if that's your thing then that's your thing.

    I participated in one CM ride in LA a few years ago and it wasn't pleasant.

    It's an excuse to party, covered by a thin veneer of political action, masquerading as anarchy.

    What else are today's over-indulged and over-privileged youth gonna do? Better than shooting each other, I guess.

    I'd rather they shoot each other and thin out the herd.

    So I guess you are saying you didn't want to join the ride?

    Haha...

    Imagine a Los Angeles with so much bike traffic that this becomes a regular occurrence...

    Would bike lane rage...one cyclist against another...ever happen ya think?

    When I watch video of China the bike traffic looks kinda wild.

    So how did you get around them? What did you do?
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

    bike on bike....nah......i just rode through them with one foot out ready to go. not one of them got out of the way. real nice. most were pointing my way with bike lights on to....was seeing spots for another few blocks. the thing is, i had a feeling this would happen as it has on three other occasions. i dunno about other CM's but the guys in my barrio have no clue.....
