As to why - we came to the realization that what was a training ride for him - was THE ride for others. That sprinting up that hill or to that light was as competitive as it was going to get all week.

He's in a pretty serious training mode now. We don't know for what. I am hoping that Eldo will be open Tues, or the CBR race in Long Beach June 7, but I have not heard yet. Maybe Como tomorrow.

Any of the faster San Diego group rides going?
Not sure, haven't looked into it yet. RE: surges, yeah, I don't surge much and prefer to not really open it up unless there is a long open section. I take (petty) pleasure in people that fly by me in busy sections, esp if there is open road coming up.
