OK cool, I just figured if you voiced your needs, there would be a possibility that someone out there would have a spare or something they wouldn't mind donating.

los angeles county is a big county...
well, are you anywhere near long beach?
lets see, there are weekly rides almost every night around here.
https://lafixed.com/comments.php?Disc...&page=1#Item_8
that's a link to lafixed.com, specifically that's a ride i'm doing Saturday with a few friends. me and my friends are early 20s... or pre 20s... like 19-21.
i don't mind who i ride with as long as they are cool. age shouldn't matter. but if you're looking for a more social ride, i guess having people your own age helps with relating relevant age related things like school.

The LAFixed crew are pretty cool and tend to be young.

Personally, I ride with people from 17 to 70, I don't care as long as it's fun.

(5FIX2) has "bring your slow friends" nights. I'm sure you'd have no problem keeping up. Now staying up till the wee hours...

Rick rode with them on a regular ride, as I did. What do you roadie/hipsters call it, "sandbagging"??

I don't think I'll be doing any nite rides for a long while, at least not until my patio and brick oven projects are completed and I have more time to relax and daydream about bikes again.

Have you checked out this group? They are more family/community-oriented, but you can start there.

i could send you to ray's house, you could ask him yourself.

there's got to be a book on ray's work somewhere or one of the architecture schools libraries might have his archives. where are you going to school?

ride with some older riders if you actually want to learn how to ride properly. they will be faster, too. most younger and/or newer(not all) don't know what the **** they're doing
