This time around for RIDE-Arc the first Friday of the month falls on the first day of the month… coincidence? I think not! Anyway, just a heads-up that tomorrow night’s edition of the monthly ride promises a grand tour of the vastness and rich socio-cultural flatness of the San Fernando Valley, but more intriguingly will feature a revisit to the key Kafka-esque komponent of RIDE-Arc’s notorious and unforgettable November “Stormwatch” ride. I will say no more than it was like totally and titularly tubular then, and it’ll be even moreso again.
The ride will gather at 9 p.m. at the North Hollywood Red Line station, departing at 9:30 on a mostly level route that is slated for 25 miles. If you’re on this side of the hill and interested you’re welcome to join certain representatives from your humble and magnanious IAAL‚Ä¢MAF who will be reconnoitering at Scoops Ice Cream on Heliotrope north of Melrose at 8 p.m. for some pre-ride treats before hopping the subway north from the Santa Monica/Vermont station.
