Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

As long as I can get some Boddingtons down there I'm down. Maybe there should be a thread of routes in each town. Or maybe I should just go out and ride. Only a couple more months till warm time!

Not within biking distance. A good 40 minute drive.

I'm really unclear as to why everyone is hating on LA. Terror in Pink put it best. I read all these threads about how the bike community is so splintered in all your bike friendly cities, yet I have yet to see any sort of animosity or negative feeling directed against myself or any of my friends by another cylist. We're not plagued by the ******* hipsters you all speak of and have an entire ubran sprawl to ride though.

We ride at night and take over the entire street, not just one lane, and overall people love us. Most importantly though, we love each other.

Kyle was being cool and inviting you guys to share in the awesomeness that we get to enjoy every month and all you're going to do is trash us? That's really messed up. I'm going to take back his invite and challenge you to a duel, *****es!

There's Plenty of LOVE in LosAngeles. I'm looking forward to seeing some of You guys/gals come down to our rides (Midnight Radazz/ SantaMonica CM L.A. CM)

BTW- You can get into Downtown L.A. from Fullerton [City close to Disneyland] via train in 32 minutes for like $5.
