Illegal Midnight Bike Races
I went on a ride that started in Alhambra to Downtown Los Angeles. We went to see some Midnight Ridazz racing on the streets. These guys are pretty good. A lot of them are track racers. The racers pitched in $5 each and the winner takes all. They raced around a predetermined course and had to do 10 laps. It looked like a lot of people showed up to watch the races. The alternative bicycle culture of riding fixed gear bikes without brakes is all the rage right now. I want to get a fixie too, because it really is great training.
