    You know your in so-cal when...

    Every single damn store you go into has a Pinarello Prince fully built haha. I'm so tired of seeing that damn bike when I go in to get some Co2 its damn depressing. One kid at the store had the audacity to tell me that if I was going to look at a Pinarello FP5 I might as well check out the Prince...yah I mean ****, if your going to spend 5k whats 5k more. HAHA.

    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    I did night rides in January in Minnesota, they just sucked a lot harder.

    I was drooling at Hi-Tech Bikes yesterday and there was guy in getting fitted for a REALLY nice Tri bike that left in a HUGE red truck. It was just a little strange seeing a cyclist in this huge gas guzzling vehicle!
    I'm not sure he was a redneck, but....

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    ...when you want to pick up a dictionary and a style manual and beat the kapok out of people who still haven't learned the difference in a second-person possessive (your) and a second-person present-tense contraction (you're = you are).
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    Funny you mention that...

    Didn't actually get cut off by a Ferrari but was cycling on a Sunday morning last summer and got passed by a Ferrari, so I thought to myself wow that's pretty neat!, and then they just kept coming.... Turns out it was some sort of car club heading out to drive the canyons. I was passed by a total of 17 Ferrari's that morning, everything from old Magnum PI style up to brand new cars that still had the dealer plates. It was a trip.

    If you get out really really early (6:30 to 7am), you'll be fine. Pick up some tail wind through Malibu on the way back at 25mph and you should be good to go. Just wave the cars around ya and watch out for doors opening in your path.

    Nope, Elizabeth Lake Road in Leona Valley. Presumably they were heading to Bouquet or San Fransisquito

    When 99% of the homeowners don't do their own lawns.

    Where it starts sprinkling and besides every local news channel doing Doppler 7000 coverage of "STORM WATCH 2008!!," you get everyone on the damn freeway driving like a skittish and blind 13 year-old. On their cell phones.
