    Elevation gain: Dunno Know, but for further info, consult VB re: La Tuna.
    Tempo: Piano on the climbs; damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead on the descents.

    Ciao,

    I can. And 40 sounds like a good round number, especially if I add it to the ride over and back from the park.

    I can eat bagels on Saturday too! I'm a strong maybe for this. I'll ride over to the park, but then leave goldsteins and go straight home from there.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Are you going on Huntington to Longden then onto San Dimas and back on the rollers of Sierra Madre in Glendora and Encanto and back to Sierra Madre where the fat cop will pull you over for not coming to a complete stop at their stop signs? Que vida loca??

    Is this a business? And if so, where do we place an order like that? I love any variation of rhubarb pie! (And it's just a coincidence that Pushing Daisies is the best new this season!)

    I may make it, I don't feel quite like doing Montrose tomorrow.

    It's a virtual bakery

    Yes, It's a virtual bakery. I cater desserts. I'm a french-trained pastry chef. I'm making a large pie for a buddhist center tomorrow. You're welcome to place an order anytime!

    Since you were so nice to speak and ride with me from your posing session, I'll bake you a xmas pie. What's your favorite? And don't say I've never done anything for you.

    Hey, thank you for the PIE offer Vanessa, you're very kind. But as a poser, I'm not so sure I deserve a PIE....

    That's okay, Alice. This ride will be ongoing - both the bagel and bagel with tuna. You'll have lots of opportunities to join.
