Pcadchallenges.com

OK, so there's this pretentious website, ceochallenges.com, and for $5700 per person you get to ride with George Hincapie for three days in SC.

I'll tell you what. You can sign up with Pcadchallenges.com and ride with Pcad for 3 days in Chester NY for $2700 per person - less than half the price.

Hurry, enrollment is limited to whoever I can sucker into this scam.

I'll give you $39.50, and not a penny more.

Okay, one penny more.

Paying to drop Freds seems very unsportsmanlike -- it's kind of like hunting in a zoo. Though I understand people pay big money to hunt on specially stocked "ranches."

how much is the tax. I'm always suspicious of those who don't say what the inclusive price is.

Because you would have to travel so far I'd have to provide a bike... something in blue perhaps ?

That would cost extra.

Is that US or CAN funds? The buck-seventy difference could be a real dealbreaker for me.
