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

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 […]

Santa Monica Critical Mass RANT

Santa Monica Critical Mass RANT

(Hal receives a ticket from the Santa Monica Police Department at Santa Monica Critical Mass) Whether Santa Monica wants it or not, whether it’s true or not, the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) is perpetuating the message “cyclists aren’t welcome in Santa Monica.”  Probably the only people ignoring them are the participants in Santa Monica […]

Ride: ROB03033303TZ!!

I just received the Facebook invitation for the 4th ROB00303033TZ ride.  Why the organizer is using 3’s instead of 4’s escapes me – I must be dense.  Still – last month’s ride was epic, travelling through Playa Vista, storming LAX, visiting Hermosa Beach, and ending in a bonfire on Dockweiler Beach.  This month’s ride begins […]

Photos: Venice Critical Mass & Something Else

Venice Critical Mass was wild.  We had around 80 riders at the beginning.  We finished it a 7-11 parking lot at Sepulveda and Sawtelle, at which point we declared that we were on a new ride – a ride that was something else.  So from now on, the post VCM ride it the Something Else […]
