Allow me to showcase the fine work above of IAAL‚Ä¢MAF charter member Stephen “The Laminator” Roullier who once again has put his expert skills as a manipulator of heated plastic sheeting to work in the production of the commemorative and collectible spokecards to be presented to the first 40,000 cyclists who arrive ready to ride in the IAAL‚Ä¢MAF’s second invitational tomorrow evening and are prepared to “Take Back The Observatory.”

Shall we gather at the river? Yes we shall at 6:30 p.m. at Bicycle Park (map) for a 7 p.m. departure along this route, which Midnight Ridazz‘ Too Tall Jahmal has enthusiastically deemed “sick” and whose 1,000 feet of elevation gain would no doubt leave IAAL‚Ä¢MAF Co-Founder Sean Bonner really fucking pissed off if he were joining us, which I’m pretty sure he isn’t because he doesn’t feel like killing anybody in anger tomorrow night. Friday maybe, but never on Thugsday.

So be duly re-forewarned: This is a terrifically unique excursion through the backwood heights of Le Parc du Griffith in the chill of the night with but a sliver of waning moon to steer by. Bring lights, locks, layers… and bail money (just in case). Reservations? We don’t need no stinkin’ reservations!

The previous announcement with all the details is here. Flickr photoset from our inauguvitational “Hello Dahlia” ride is here.

  1. Well for sure it ain’t gonna be easy for them Huph, but if I can make it up to the top on my single-speeder so can any dedicated fixter hippies… er fixie hipsters. :)

  2. Oh man, I’m am soooooo going to fucking die trying this hill after a 4 week layoff from bike riding.

    I was hoping Bonner would come along so I could finish a close “second to last” to his “last”. Maybe I’ll get lucky and Delmy will forget that she can shift out of “3”.

  3. Hi Matt,

    I just traced along with Mt. Hollywood Drive as it was laid out on the map, double-clicking along at various intervals to mark the route. I’m not sure why you aren’t able to do the same thing… maybe it’s an operating system issue? I’ve heard Gmaps acts up with certain OS types.

  4. I thought maybe it would follow the road automatically by entering two points, one at the start of the road and one at the end. But you have to click a new point at every turn of the road it seems. At least on Firefox and IE on my PC at work.

  5. Maybe I’ll get lucky and Delmy will forget that she can shift out of “3”.

    Hahaha. No such luck. She’s got to bow out because of family obligations. However, after tonight’s adventure in the dark around Elysian Park I firmly believe I will claim “last” with little to no competition.
