The Midnight Ridazz present bike riding around LA like you probably never experienced before. Tonight , they’re asking riders to dress up like a letter and ride around to make words (and friends). The Ridazz promise “half-amazing/half-stupid games for no prizes at all!!!” Now if an offer like that doesn’t get you off your couch and onto your bike, we don’t know what will.
