We're looking for old faces and new faces for the West side Wednesday night ride. This is a long ago established weekly ride some of you may know of as the former Supergo / Performance shop Santa Monica ride. We now meet at Cynergy Cycles on 25th and Santa Monica Blvd. around quarter till 8:00, and rolling out on the hour.

Rides are almost exclusively in the nearby Santa Monicas but sometimes elsewhere. Some rides that require a bit more travel -- such as Backbone via Corral Cyn, Piuma or Chesboro -- are notified via email (wednesdaynightride@gmail.com) but most are usually decided on the spot at 8:00 PM and usually involve variations off the nearby Sullivan Canyon, Sullivan Ridge, Westridge, etc, etc.

This isn't a blazing super-fast XC race-pace conditioning ride but it's not slow by any means either. There's some socializing while riding up, some regrouping, but generally a consistent and fast pace for about 1.5-2 hours, usually finishing with some gnarly downhills where the trailbikes really shine. For numbers, we've had as many as 20, as few four, but averaging around eight every Wednesday. Guys and gals both welcome. Bring a decent bike, decent light/s, 2-way radio (if you’ve got one), and maybe a few bucks to have a beer or two afterwards at McCabes, near the original meeting spot in Santa Monica (optional). No need to contact me, unless you have questions. Just show up at Cynergy before 8:00.
