|Don't feel bad. I have lots of days like that when 15 would be good.

|Very nice. Never done a lunch time ride. Downtown LA doesn't have a lot of nice rolling ruralish rides.|

|somewhere along the line you said you're in Atlanta. I have yet to visit GA however, incentive builds each day to do so in a few weeks, if only to take out Martha Burke and rid our planet of just one more annoying moron.|

|I love lunch rides. I work near Griffith Park in L.A., so if I've packed my good bike in the trunk, I usually head up into the hills. I come back sweaty. Nobody cares. I keep another bike permanently at my office. I take it out on cruises. When I do, I look like a total Fred - long pants, loafers, sport shirt and helmet; cruising on an old Italian racing bike. Pelotons of maniacal roadies zoom past me. I give them a silly grin. Hi folks!|

|My boss and I went up and cranked out a little over an hour on the skate skis at lunch today. It was snowing pretty good, so we definately got a good workout powering through the new stuff.
Gotta love a little cross training!
