Ho Ho Ho...Christmas Eve Crack 'O Dawn PCH Ride!

After much discussion, Voltaire and I decided we're riding tomorrow. No really. We are. Meet at 6:15a.m. at Magnolia and Banning...be ready to roll or we'll leave your ass there. Short and sweet...I need to be home by 9:00a.m. to pick up the new puppers.

Oh...in case you're interested in the "much discussion"...it really did happen.

Do YOU want to?
I can go either way. If we don't, I'll probably just do a short shakedown ride later on in the day.
You're not helping!
It's my job not to!

Would you be riding if I didn't suggest it?
No.
Then Tuesday it is!
Seriously though, I'll ride in the morning if you want to.
It's cool. I have a feeling I may have to stop every so often to check the cables and such. I'm not very satisfied with the chain install.
Are you sure? I can ride!!!
You're older. You decide!
You're younger. So there.
I vote...Tuesday?
Tuesday? or Tuesday!
Tuesday.
Are you sure?
No.

Yes!

Tuesday!
Okay...I'll see you tomorrow!
6:15?
YES!
Deal!

I'll consider this one - was planning to go to GMR for a recon ride in the morning but might opt to ride with you guys instead. I'll decide before I go to bed . . . wife is beckoning me . . .

I'm beginning to think that you don't really have a road bike, that you just posted a stock photo of that bike and that's why we never see you on group rides.

I'm sure my house is worse! I have three little tornadoes who do quite a number on this place. In fact, it was spotless downstairs when I went to bed last night and it looks like something exploded in the dining and living rooms right now. Art projects and drawings strewn everywhere and early Xmas presents all over the floor. I need to puppy proof this place too!

Ah, You got me there. It's just me, and a Cat that sheds white ( of course everything in the house is dark) hair.

3 tornados ( and one Puppy to be ) > one lazy guy
