Nobody is emotionally distressed or offended by that wall. We merely say that it sucks. And if I happen to ride in that area during the event, sure as hell I'm not going to change my riding plans.

Closed road, perfect weather and still, by far, the smallest crowd ever on GMR on the 4-th of July. Not sure what happened to cycling in SoCal, but surely it's not good.
