I have a three day seminar in San Francisco on May 3, 4, and 5. In addition to spending some time at the famous Toronado bar, I've decided to enhance my trip with a stopover in Santa Cruz on Friday night on the way home. After talking to the infamous Cooper by phone, we've made plans for a ride on the morning of Saturday, May 6, with the promise of some flame action on the Cooper front drive during the visit. Since missing Cooper on the SD trip, I've been looking forward to meeting him. Any other loungers in the Santa Cruz area who are interested in riding on Saturday or drinking on Friday should sound off. I'm booked for some cheesy motel a couple of blocks from the water.

Just a warning. He doesn't look anything like the pictures you've seen. He's about 350 lbs, and has no hair, and if you ride with him, all you hear is a lot of wheezing, and he's so slow, you'll never see him after the first mile. And if that really cute woman you've seen in pictures is his wife, it's news to me. That whole fire thing is an act. He was afraid of matches when I met him. But have fun!

And whatever goes down, no Mohair Chairs are invited for the ride. He hurt my feelings and made me cry. My therapist says he's a really negative person for me to be around, but with a few more sessions and a double dose of Zoloft, the doctor assures me I'll get better.

Ohhhhh, man. I can't be there. I am so disappointed. :( :( :(

Cannot believe I am gonna miss out on hanging with gray-haired hottie cyclists in Santa Cruz. And fiery diversions, too. I will have to wait yet again to meet the man behind the flamethrower.

Are you gonna climb the Santa Cruz Mountains? Highway 9? Skyline Blvd? Cruise the beach? Awww...

I would love to join, but I am gonna be swimming, biking, and running out of town that weekend. May 6th is the day of the Wildflower Triathlon at Lake San Antonio. BUT if the weather turns nasty like it was two years ago, I will stay home and ride with you guys! :cool:

I was planning on taking MM up Eureka Canyon and back down through Soquel, finishing up with some ocean front riding. ~60+ miles. If your plans change, IM me, and we can get you directions. Are you around Friday night, I imagine there's going to be some dinner festivities?

I'd make it if I could, and I'd like to, but I think I'm racing that morning in Rancho Cordova.
