If you were leading a group ride, what would you do differently? I have led a ride before, just the basics. Rest stops, water breaks, regroups.
Do you prefer small rides (30 or less people) or larger rides and why?
If I want to go on a fast paced ride then yes I would like to do rides with 30 or less people but If I want to relax and have fun and socialize then I like to go on awesome rides like west side mosey or crankmob but most FMLY rides.
Tell us about the best and worst experience you’ve encountered on a group ride.
The absolute best experience was on my first FMLY ride, I forgot who I went with I think it was with riders that I met that week, I was shocked to see that every stop had a band playing and people were very nice and sometimes giving free stuff! The worst was on a FMLY ride that separated into two groups, I went into the wrong group and some car cut us off I was trying to chase after it and I hit a really deep pothole and flew.
What did you do for fun before you started “riding”?
Practiced guitar, I am in a band spanish rock with a bit of classic rock and some metal
What’s the best and worst thing group bike rides have done for cycling as a whole in Los Angeles?
The best is the bike culture! YOu get to meet soo many people and get to see places that you have never been before!
It is not so great when some of the riders haven't been riding for long and still need to practice riding their bike, especially those kids with no brakes
If you can name 1 person who embodies the spirit of “Midnight Ridazz”, Who would it be and Why?
John O'snap Clark
What do you think the public’s perception is of group bike rides?
These kids on their bikes, they need to be more careful!
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
