April Fool's Ride: about 1.5 miles

dog hair and I are planning on riding on Sunday, April 1. Climb Palomar South Grade. Descend East Grade. Climb East Grade. Do an out and back to the observatory. Descend South Grade. Start time to be determined. Who's in? The last time we did this ride as a group ride, those in attendance got to witness the removal of my dork disk. And extort was eaten by a hawk.

By the way, I'm not kidding about the 1.5 miles. That's how many vertical miles of descending is on this ride. In the horizontal direction, figure on about 60 miles.

Start at the overflow parking lot for the Harrah's casino. Roll at 9 AM.

I'm too heavy. And I'm weak. And my gearing sucks.

This morning V told me that if I put a 12-27 cassette on that he was naming me wussy gear user. Judgmental macho bastard.

just because you're a big boy doesn't mean you always have to wear the big boy pants.

No, that's Jason's job. We're waiting for James to commit to crew so he can photodocument the unveiling.

What do you mean "stay"? I thought you were 21?
