so you ask G Gecko out on a man date but never came through on Doomstock. It is almost like you don't want us over your house or something.

I wonder if we can convince pcad to fly out to Col de Granon or Mt Washington If agreed, I'm sure a few of us will chip in for a day's documentary crew.

You actually go on the Park Ridge ride? I used to do a wed evening training ride w/ a bunch of the guys from that shop- granted this was 10 years ago, but they were a bunch of nut cases.
