Almost exactly a year ago Midnight Ridazz set out on their most ambitious ride to date – the Swarm The Pier ride. It was so massive that they needed two starting points – one east side, one west side, both converging on
Venice Santa Monica Pier sometime in the wee hours of the morning. Tonight we’re doing it again!
The first leg starts at Melrose and Heliotrope and we’ll be riding out by 10:00PM sharp (for realz, we’re on a schedule) and the second meeting place is at Trader Joe’s in Culver City (meeting time there is 10:30 – will leave as soon as the east side ridazz show up) and then both groups will proceed to the Pier. The ride is 17 miles from the first starting point, 8 from the second – but that is ONE WAY. Remember, once you get to the pier you have to get home so the round trip from Trader Joe’s is 16 miles (but it’s dead flat of course given that it’s all the way out by the beach).
Here’s a bunch of photos Will took last year. I only did the Culver City leg and wished I’d done the whole thing. Tonight I’ll be doing it from start to finish. Who’s with me?
