Currently what rides do you attend regularly and what ride(s) would you like to see make a comeback? dont ride any of the party rides any more cause i found out i was an alcoholic, and realized i wasnt riding for the sake of riding but because i loved drinking and getting fucked up.i really liked sins and sprockets though.i remember the first time i brought nela CM to their ride.it blew up after that so i pretty much take credit for making S N S what it became .i also created the rubiks cube

What advice would you pass on to new ridazz?
enjoy it while the feeling is still new.that awesome feeling that you get in your belly when youre riding amongst hundreds of riders will never be the same after a few rides.

If you were leading a group ride, what would you do differently?
i would accept the fact that theres no way to control any group over 20 people and accept the fact that if im willing to put on a ride im willing to accept the 10 percent that are gonna fuck shit up and not make a big deal out of it.

Do you prefer small rides (30 or less people) or larger rides and why?
at first i loved big rides .but now i think i would prefer a small intimate gathering of good friends because they would be small intimate gatherings among friends.

Tell us about the best and worst experience you’ve encountered on a group ride.
they were all pretty good.i made the rides whatever i wanted to make them.i guess the only bad experience was that time when that guy almost chopped off my head with a shovel and then his friends proceeded to take my bike.nothing too bad i guess

What did you do for fun before you started “riding”?
i always rode on and off sice i was about 14.im now 36.but in my 20s and early 30s i did a lot of sports and was also playing in punk bands .i also used to be i a running group that were called the valley hashers which was just like MR only running intead of biking.ieverything i did before MR involved drinking.once i found MR my drinking just got a little more dangerous in some ways and a little less in others

What’s the best and worst thing group bike rides have done for cycling as a whole in Los Angeles?
it got kids riding bikes to school again but its also created a bunch of ignorant little fucking biking people that havent got the slightest idea why theyre even riding a bike.

If you can name 1 person who embodies the spirit of “Midnight Ridazz”, Who would it be and Why?
i would honestly have to say me,dingo.mostly because everytime i read this ? on everyone elses spotlight ,im hoping to see my name, but ....NOOOOO...!noone even knows who the fuck i am anymore!


What do you think the public’s perception is of group bike rides?
i think 80 % of the people driving really get annoyed by it and most of the time i think they have good reason to despise group rides.but i think about 80% of people that see a ride goin by while out of their car find it really different and refreshing.like a parade of sorts

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
for picures of me go to dingos gallery in the photo gallery section of this here website.feel free to add to the gallery if you have any flattering pics of me.im sure youll do the opposite.
last but not least....
i coast when riding through an intersection so people know im not riding fixed..and tren way sucks balls!
