    Montrose Ride

    Me and two of my friends met at the bowl and cruised over to meet up with the group. I was hurting so bad, but it was a great way to finish off a long week. Now it's time for a day or two of recovery

    Anyways, I met someone from here at the Sierra Madre Juice Co. I caught your name, but I can't remember what it was now. Chime in so I can put a face with the name next time I'm out there!

    It's not me, but I believe roadfix/George does the Montrose ride.

    BTW, my name's Josh. Chepe or Ivan could have told you who I was since I talked to both of them today as well. I thought you might recognize the jersey. We talked in a different thread and you mentioned that you know my teammate Gustavo.

    Awesome, sorry about the confusion. I thought you said something completely different when you said "redal" It was loud and I was a bit out of it from not eating breakfast before the ride. I didn't even look at the jersey, haha. Thats what I get for not eating or drinking anything before a ride.

    Sorry dude, I wish I had known it was you when we talked! I would have invited you down to my place in Pasadena to eat lunch with Chepe, Ivan and me. It was Ivan's first time doing the Montorse ride, so Chepe and I met him at the Bowl and the three of us cruised over to Trader Joes together. We might be there again next week, hopefuly I'll see you then!
    BTW, where the hell has Gus been lately? I haven't seen him in a while.

    Thanks, I had a couple of more hours to ride anyways. I was wondering the same about Gus. I know he said he was going to start doing Simi, so he's probably been out there. I actually need to get a hold of him and see what his plans are for next year.

    Yeah, kick his ass for me if you have to. Last I talked to him he was doing Simi and was still training. I just haven't seen him around lately.

    Hi Enzo..I was there too..when we were coming down from the Descanso start, I was on the front and either you or your friend was on my wheel and when I motioned for whoever it was to come around, he said he didn't know which way the route went, so I pulled until Salvia Cyn, where we dove down into the bowl..my name is Pat btw. You guys rode well

    Awesome. I'll look forward to meeting you guys soon. I didn't start at Descanso, it was probably either Jason or Dan. Both of them have never done the ride before, so it must have been them.

    Chepe and I met up with Ivan at the Bowl and the three of us cruised over to Trader Joes together to wait for the peleton. We were all waiting to make a left at the light on Mission when the Peleton caught up, so if you saw a Bearclaw guy at the light, that was me.

    Did you go short or long?

    Neither of those places do it for me. I'm partial to the espresso and cappucino my machine makes. After the ride sometime, I'll make you guys some

    There's a Starbucks at the end of the ride. No Coffee Bean. Someday you guys are going to have to go past Gladstone to the finish of the ride and I'll buy you some coffee at the Starbucks in Sierra Madre. Coffee Bean, Peets, Starbucks, AMPM, 7-11 or my house, they all get the job done for me.

    Pat's been warning me that day is coming soon - at least for some of us. You'll drive us back to Claremont after coffee though, right?
