    I made the mistake of discussing a "group ride" with members of the "triple X" club while with some of my Alpine skiing friends in Utah this year. I had to explain that I was not refurring to the film industry and that people should get their minds out of the gutter (true story).

    I can neither search for that club on Google/Yahoo/Bing nor get to their team page via my work PC. Way to name the club something dirty!
