    I'm 99.94% sure I'm doing this again. Had an absolutely great time last year, and this is a couple weeks after CC/VQ.

    You probably don't HAVE TO, but you choose to. And, thanks for doing that.

    If it's prior to 3000' I could make it. However, we will never know for sure.

    One man's "great time" is another man's private hell.

    The “25” miler is fun, I’ll probably do it again this year (skipped last year due to conflicts with my manage.. wife). Food trucks and beers after, good cause.

    But isn't most any ride in the mountains both Heaven and Hell?

    I have to hand it to you OCers. You have a wonderful cycling community. I dont believe we have it going as well up here in Smellay.

    If you are referring to me, I do go to the mountains - just not the Santa Anas very often. Colorado, Utah and British Columbia count as mountains, I think. So does Big Bear, I am told.

    We don't all have to like the same things, yo.

    I realize the reputation of Laguna riding, but most of the time, I have clean DH runs with no interference from anyone - on a weekend morning. Riding in crowds of 15 gives me great anxiety. A crowd of 100s or 1000 would send me to the looney bin. Sorry that I don't like the big group events. Can't help who I am.

    I'll take my apology in triplicate, please. And can I have it notarized? And a cookie?
