Ok I start.
To the woman who drafted off of me from Sunset Beach to Huntigton beach and then complimented me on "nice pull". Sorry I was a bit grumpy I didn't have my morning coffee before I left for a ride. I am considering replacing one of the water bottle holders with a coffee mug holder.

To the downed rider I saw yesterday morning on Wilshire/Westwood--hope you and your bike are doing ok.

Also, to all the people who were at the corner of Wilshire/Western at around 7:20pm last night for the Critical Mass ride--you rock. I wish I could've joined you but I needed to get home and sleep. Oh, and to that one guy whose rear wheel I bumped with my bike--sorry.

FYI: A 16 paper coffee cup fits fairly well in the seat-tube mounted bottle cage, but you can't really drink from it while riding.

To the several people who wave and I don't wave back. I should and want to but it just takes me by surprise. I guess I always expect the worst from people.

Um, yes, you can 'cause I have. Drink down 1/3 first, or enjoy a nice camouflage sticky crankset. BTDT!

Just drink it without sugar.

The cups at work are too weak to drink from well while riding up the hill. I used to stop and get a cup at work sometimes, and then ride the rest of the way up the hill, but had to be really careful not to let the bike rock very much or I'd burn my ankles.

to the doucebag in full milram kit and weighing a svelte 250lbs., that i pulled away from TWICE going uphill and into the wind on vista del mar, it isn't cool to pass me within a foot like you owned me on the DOWNHILL at the end of the road. next time, i put you down into the on-coming traffic.

Just because I put on a few pounds lately does not give you the right to make fun of my new Milram kit.

P.S. ummm... Vista del Mar is pretty flat.

P.P.S. I DO own you. At least for those hours I paid for.

when you are doing long sustained sprint intervals, it is uphill...gradually, but still up.................and into the wind.

your cash is always good at my place.
