It was just a year ago that a small group of Valley kids started a Valley Midnight Ridazz contingent. Ten bicyclists met up and rode through the night. Now a year later, the Valley has its fair share... in one way at least.

Last night proved the Valley is hardcore, or maybe just a little more crazy. More cops, more helicopters, more scents of weed, more beer, more angry drivers, more near fist fights and more chaotic disorganization. A recipe for disaster and tons of fun, and at least one "no riding with a headlight" ticket.

Unlike the LAPD divisions in Metro and Hollywood, the North Hollywood division and the Burbank Police Department used more force than their over-the-hill counterparts, who usually take a step back proving the best tactic is no tactic when it comes to LA's largest nerd gang of bicyclists.
