The fucksticks using this as a pretend race training ride* need to remember that this was started EIGHT years ago (and always ridden) as a no-drop ride. If you want to be billy bad ass racer boi, step up your game and hit the Tuesday Nighter or Wednesday La Tuna ride. Oh, wait, get dropped on those? Kinda shitty feeling, right, especially if you don't know where you're going? That's exactly what you're doing to the rest of the Monday folks who are out just looking for a fun ride.
*which is a joke in and of itself because if you were really training, Monday would be a recovery day after going hard/racing over the weekend.
