    SO CAL Slang

    So, I have read recently from a new member that we in So Cal use "slang" and it's difficult to catch on. The member, who isn't the first to say that, said it very nicely, so this isn't to pick on that person, but it got me thinking. When I first logged on here over a year ago, there were inside jokes, acronyms, etc. that I didn't get by the mere fact that I was new. Now, I know most of them since I've ridden with almost everyone in this regional community (and our wonderful No Cal neighbors as well). So, I thought I'd start this and if there are any new members or lurkers who want to know what we are talking about (certainly in terms of rides and routes), please ask here and someone will explain. I personally do not like the "clique" description made of a group who all know each other (yeah, yeah, we've had this debate and I suppose we could be called a clique in the grand scheme of things), so I'd like to help out and maybe learn a few I myself don't know. I'll start:

    ACH = Angeles Crest Highway
    ACC = Angeles Crest Century http://www.planetultra.com/angelescrest/index.html

    GF = Girl Friend
    GP = Griffith Park
    GMR = Glendora Mountain Road
    GRR = Glendora Ridge Road
    HC = H***ard County
    IE = Inland Empire
    IMHO = In my humble opinion
    IMO = In my opinion

    I went to UCI and can't turn my bike. Does that mean I'm up for triathlons and drug use next?

    How about Time In The Saddle and Anaerobic Short Sprints

    And a personal request for Jason C... you use accronyms all the time to describe people and places. Would you please list them all so I can make a cheat sheet?

    Okay fine, here goes:

    BA = Breathless Agony
    TDFemmes = Tour de femmes (which Joel gleefully pointed out should be Tour DES femmes )
    PV = Palos Verdes
    B2B = Back to Beach (and B2B2 was the Back to Beach ride the second go around)
    CAM = Century a Month
    Maintanence Parties = was for real, but became "bf drunken orgy hoe down"
    Budgies = Something men should always angle up in bike shorts
    Carpal Tunnel = What is pleasing many men when they see Brandy's Birthday pics in her Birthday thread

    Oh, and when I say BFers = Bike Forum members/riders

    I know PGS = Pretty Grad Student

    But I'm lost on the rest of them.

    We also need Jason (jschen) here to clear up a certain single- and triple-letter naming scheme.

    By the way, VanceMac just gave me the excellent suggestion of keeping a list of the slang in the OP (which = original post, btw - which = by the way). Oh and there is the IMO and IMHO (In my opinion and In my humble opinion) as well as WTF?! (what the ****!).

    SCC = Surf City Cyclery
    IE = Inland Empire
    MTB = Mountain Bike
    VP = Cuz no one can spell out her name
    Candy: unmentionable

    (Side note: if people who ride road bikes are "roadies," aren't people who ride mountain bikes "mounties"?)
