The 2010 Nice List: Midnight Ridazz All-City Toy Ride

Deviating from looking back at someone or something done good, I invite you to look forward to the awesome goodness to come from next Friday’s 5th-Annual Midnight Ridazz All-City Toy Ride.

This yearly convergence of several rides starting at various points around the city will bring hundreds and hundreds of toy-bearing cyclists together December 10 at 10 p.m. at the historic Plaza de Los Angeles gazebo to donate their gifts to a worthy organization serving children in need.

This year that organization is The Alliance for Children’s Rights, and all participants are asked to bring an unwrapped toy valued at $5-$25. The celebration will then continue after the toy collection at the shhhhhhecret after-party with delicious food, seasonal brew, and music.

The 10 (and counting!) rides presently organized are as follows, so find the one nearest you and get yourself some of the most unique holiday spirit to be found in town:

And for more information visit the event’s Facebook Page or check out Midnight Ridazz.

* I’ll be joining this ride in full Electric Santa regalia. If anyone from the Silver Lake/Echo Park area wants to come with me in getting there (and isn’t embarrassed to ride with a middle-aged dude outfitted in a light-studded santa suit), meet me at Brite Spot in Echo Park at 7:45 p.m.

Photographing L.A. Bike Culture


A group of cyclists from LA have formed Team Midnight Ridazz for this years AIDS LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles and are having a photography exhibition this weekend to help raise funds for the ride. Photos are by the actual participants and represent all kinds of aspects of bike culture in Los Angeles. It’s taking place Saturday evening at The Bike Oven ( 3706 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065 ) from 7pm till midnight or so. You know you want to go check it out.
