Night Ride

Alright, someone had to do it. So when would everyone be down for a night ride? I feel like friday night would be a good option since we can sleep in the next morning, most of us.

How does Friday April 7th sound for everyone?

Where should we go? Canyons aren't lit so should we cruise DTLA? Anyone have recommendations?

We could cruise downtown, stop and get food/whatever, cruise more.

Let's make this happen!

Tempting. Lemme see if I can make this.
Downtown doesn't sound too bad, can roll up through Hollywood and take Ventura Blvd up and end up somewhere in the Valley

Or could cruise the streets and end up in Santa Monica

I like the rolling up through Hollywood plan and ending in the valley, like i28 mentioned. So this is what I am thinking:

Meet at Hooters at 10 PM friday April, 7th,

1248 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015

It's in downtown, right across from Staples Center (they have a parking area in front of the hooters that should be big enough for us to park our bikes and be seen by others)

KSU at 10:15PM

ride north on Fig to Olympic,
turn left (west) onto Olympic and ride Olympic west until we reach Highland
turn right (north) on highland and follow highland alllllllll the way north until it turns into Cahuenga
continue on Cahuenga until it turns into ventura
continue on Ventura until the In-n-out at:

19920 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364


Grand total it's just shy of 24 miles and should take a little over an hour to complete

where we end the ride. Easy access for people to hop on the 101 to go back to wherever they need to go or people can peel off whenever they want. In-n-out is always open till like 1AM or 2AM so we can get refreshments there at the end if we want.

Let me know what you guys think!
