    Volt, let me know when you find out what it's like to ride with "those people"
    "Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."

    Voltaire: I'm thinking the Ladera group won't be as touchy if you decide to ride with other people.
    Mo'Phat's Rules to Live By:
    Rule #3 : Never wrestle with a pig: you both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
    Rule #5 : Never argue with an idiot: those watching might not be able to tell the difference.
    Rule #13: Always make sure she has a better time than you do.

    I'm thinking that Voltaire is purposely trying to piss the girls off because he heard that makeup sex is the best.
    Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.

    That's my LBS....Jeff Davis, the Owner, is a great Guy...
    The rides are fast...no time for a warm up...they're off like a Prom Dress....

    I got badly dropped the last time I rode with them...we were going down a descent and had to make a sharp right turn towards Ortega Hwy...I was changing down and braking hard ready for the steep climb around the Bend and my Chain came off, it happens sometimes if I change rings and Cassette at the same time.....by the time I stopped, put the Chain back on they were gone over the top....when I topped the Hill I took a right instead of left...there was no way then I'd see them again so I pegged it down to Dana Point.....then back home...so I had a nice Cranking session anyway...

    I blamed Jeff because he built my Six13...but seriously, he's a great Guy...just be prepared to ride a TT

    Once you "donate" all your worldy possessions, and eat nothing but our special "diet" for 4 straight months, you won't want to leave!

    By the way, I'm not the fastest Rider in the world, on a scale 1-10 ( 1 being Turtle pace) I'd say I'm about a 3....I didn't mean to discourage you.....

    So, in under 30 seconds and in a fumbling, erratic fashion?
    Sorry, reminiscing...
