Rides Kept Secret From General SoCal Population

Just found out today about the existence of the "Secret Leaky Fountain Forum Rides Society" Faces have been 'balckbarred' in order to protect their identities. I happened to stumble upon this secret ride society at the start of our ride today. I'd have to say the members were quite surprised to see me at the secret meeting location. Although I had been tipped off by another forum member.

Gina and I started our ride but not long after we were chased down by the secret society. We were offered two spaces in the secret paceline as a hush-hush. But being the man of honor that I am, I felt the need to refuse. It is more improtant to me to remain faithful to SoCal BF'er while bringing this injustice to their attention. That and I didn't feel like being punished by Lennys sprints and accelerations. Oops, did I say "Lenny"?

Well I will not disclose info on their identities but I thought you, the BF General Population should know of their existence. I thought the forum ride posting had been lacking lately!

That is a scary looking group. Does the guy on the right have a part time job shouting, "Da Plane! Da Plane!"

Well I for one am glad that they are exposed for the traitors that they are.

From the left it's: Lenny Ramone, Brad Ramone, Keith Ramone, Greg Ramone, Ralph Ramone and Jason Ramone.

There, take that!

I may have slipped on the non-blackbarred picture. I also may have posted it below by accident.

Dude, you don't know what you just did! The guy on the far right is cool and mellow. The dude on the far left is his brother 'Lenny'. Very strong guy, nice but you can tell he's meaner than a junkyard dog. I've seen him go Rambo4 on someone's arse before!

Sounds like a good suggestion. I could make lotsa moolah spying on and stalking people.

Wandervogel, (Hugh Murphy), sold out years ago to Planet Ultra/Adventure Corps. More recently, Planet Ultra and Adventure Corps split into different, competing organizations. Don't know if there are any undercover rides anymore.

It was good seeing you and Gina on the trail. You should have taken the two spaces offered to you and Gina because we had a nice and comfortable ride back to the Leaky fountain.
What is this Lenny's sprint and acceleration stuff? I can sprint up to 15MPH and not sure if I can pass anyone at this speed. I am in training and hopefully one day, I can sprint up to 16MPH.

Oh Man! I thought you guys went all the way to the coast. No wander I didn't see anyone down there. We did ride to Weir before we headed back to the coast.

You say 15 or 45mph?.... I didn't realize you were only going to the leaky fountain. My buddy Lee says you dropped him like a hot potato so I was worried about Gina keeping the pace or slowing you guys down. But after a few minutes, I remembered you had the rehab dude with you guys. Then figured maybe it might not have been too bad on Gina....See how I keep throwing Gina's name in there?

When we saw you, we had just got back from the beach and were just going to put in a little more.

My bad, thought you had just started! Well you guys are the neatest cleanest bunch-o-riders I've seen. Not one of you looked dirty or sweaty like you had been riding. The dude without the helmet looks like he's ready for a GQ mag photoshoot! Atleast mess up the hair!

That's Brad and he is the one who got hit by the car two years ago and I bet that if you ask him he wouldn't agree with your assessment!!! I have no doubt that he'll be kicking our butts again in a couple of months though, that was just his third ride since his last surgery to remove some of the Titanium from his leg.

More like 15 instead of 45 MPH because I don't even have the leg power to get up to 45MPH on the downhill(coming down from Mt. Baldy via GMR). I did not drop your buddy Lee like a hot potato because he was with me the whole way until I bailed out at the Leaky fountain.
