OK. I full-on admit it. I have a man-crush on this dude. I like his car, I like his house, I covet his garage and I am spellbound by his bicycle collection. I met him over a buisness deal (buying his leftover stuff on CL). He's one of the few people that I have met that is local, cycles and isn't a deuchbag. I would love to ride with him but he is SO out of my league I'm not sure that it would even be worth it for him (he was a pro racer in a foreign land).
So, should I ask him out? Do any of you other clydes ride with "regular" cyclists? PRO level cyclists?
I guess a better way of phrasing the question is: "what have been your experiences on with a riding partner who was at the far end of the specrum from you in fitness, skill and endurance"?
