I recently came across a group from LA calling themselves the Midnight Ridazz bicycle club that made me pause for a moment to consider and compare our own chapters direction. First this excerpt from the "About the Ridazz" link:
What Midnight Ridazz is:
Open - Minded
What Midnight Ridazz is NOT:
I began my own list for the Street Kings:
What the Street Kings are:
-fast as shit
-Semi abrasive (like 400 grit though)
What the Street Kings are not:
-Political (there is no room for that shit on an SK ride. Pull the curtain, vote and then shut up about it)
-Commercialized (this is not for lack of trying. The sales on the SK hand towels tanked and no one is buying the logo covered dinner plates due to some silly lead paint concerns)
-I could not with a clear conscious include mean spirited in this list but we are trying.
-Protest (Anyone that says otherwise will find a crew of bike riding hooligans on their front lawn with sharp objects and bad intentions)
Street Kings for life!
