Reason #5 to go to CicLAvia: Dodgeball

Reason #5 to go to CicLAvia: Dodgeball

You must go to CicLAvia.  I’ll offer you reasons you should go, but the real reason is that you don’t have a choice – CicLAvia is now compulsory for all cyclists, so says the Bikeside Illuminati.  The reasons are just a way for you to feel like you made the decision to go to CicLAvia [...]

The top 11 Things I want to do at CicLAvia

The top 11 Things I want to do at CicLAvia

CicLAvia is Sunday.  The organizers of the event capitalized on a setback (“if you push a negative hard enough it becomes a positive” paraphrase of Saul Alinsky) and rescheduled the event for the numerically alliterative date of 10/10/10.  Apart from the obvious conclusion that they will be forced to organize events for 11/11/11, 12/12/12, 20/20/2020 [...]

T-REX shows the way.

T-REX shows the way.

Last week I wrote about how I get psyched, and how we can psyche up others to ride bikes.  Sure thing, shortly after hitting publish I find something to make the post better.  One of my favorite webcomics, Dinosaur Comics, ran this strip: This got me thinking – you can’t just start bike partying, and [...]

I get so psyched . . .

I get so psyched sometimes, my face falls off.  Or maybe I rip it off – I’m not sure, but it’s definitely HULK STATUS™.  I recently saw this video of one crazy kid starting an amazing dance party (thanks @ETOTHEROCK): Did you watch the whole thing?  No?  Well then you won’t get it – so [...]

RIDE: ROB0131313TZ, Unlucky Hoomanz

ROBOTZ is back, as ROB0131313TZ (Facebook event.)  If you’re a hoomanz, you’re unlucky, because only robotz can bike with robotz.  This time it’s 25 miles-ish, finishing at 2am somewhere in West LA.  We meet at CRANK MOB PARK, 9201 Venice Blvd, at 7pm, and leave promptly at 8pm, this Saturday.  It’s a mild hustle, so [...]

RIDE: BEAR CAVALRY! Saturday, May 30th, Noon, Venice Skatepark

For many, the onslaught of memes in the bike scene is unBEARable.  Just for them, some cat named KNITTENS created a new ride (Facebook) for those cooler Saturday’s when watergun rides are not appropriate: Some of you are probably already aware of Bear Cavalry, an internet meme of awesome.   But, if when you saw [...]

Caturday:  ROB050505555TZ Ryde, All Shitty Edition

Caturday: ROB050505555TZ Ryde, All Shitty Edition

It’s that time again.  KNITTENS emailed me this flyer for ROB050505555TZ, the All Shitty Edition (Facebook event listing.)  I think she meant “all-city”, but such is the accent of LOLCATs.  This Saturday, 8pm, at CRANK MOB PARK (Venice & Canfield.)  KNITTENS writes that you should “be prepared for all night no-fun no-party no-time!!!”, whatever that [...]

Ride: ROB04040444TZ! Saturday, November 15th, 2008

KNITTENS, the ride organizer who is shrouded in mystery, sent me this flyer for ROB044044044TZ (Facebook listing), which will start from CRANK MOB PARK at Venice & Canfield in Culver City at 8pm.  No beach cruisers allowed.  Expect 25 brisk miles ending in whereabouts that would make your mother cringe, and another 10 miles to [...]

C.R.A.N.K. MOB did NOT happen on Saturday

C.R.A.N.K.
